What worked in 2020
Our data scientists crunched the numbers to pinpoint the 10 most powerful nudges we delivered this year. Here’s a sneak peek at the small actions that had the biggest impact on people’s morale, engagement, and performance.
• Ask more meaningful questions: This week, instead of “How are you?” which is likely to result in “Fine,” try “What are you looking forward to this week?” or “What’s been the highlight of your day?”
• Make your workload work: Talk to your manager about your workload. If you’re bored, ask to take on more complex tasks. If you’re overwhelmed, ask how you might be more intentional about applying your skills.
• Go for it: This week, make it a point to take on a new responsibility. By breaking out of your normal routine, you can quickly expand your abilities—and discover a new type of work that you love!
