Ryan commented on Cup of T.E.A.

I am curious to hear more about your idea. I see the merits of the T.E.A principles but do not see how it would be implemented. Would this be done through a formal mentoring/review program between employees? Or is this something on the informal side where it is assumed that management has the employee's best interest in their decisions? I would love to hear back about how you plan to implement the T.E.A methodology within an organization and what checks you would have in place to measure the success.


Ryan commented on Awaken

I think this is a great idea! It is similar to the concept of giving anonymous feedback for other employees, but utilizing social media to make it easier and more accessible. I think the biggest problem with this idea would be getting employees to participate as you had mentioned. A potential idea to fix this would be offering a prize of some sort (cash, extra day off, free lunch) for the person with the most posts about them. This would encourage people to post what they have witnessed or seen as well as encourage some employees to be more helpful. A problem I do see with my suggestion is that it may take away from the authenticity of being helpful or submissions. Getting people to participate is definitely a tricky situation.
