Optional, but NOT Optional
One thing that has bothered me is that our leadership speaks out of both sides of the mouth. MS Poll is supposedly a "voluntary" activity, but from what I hear, managers get pushed from more senior leadership to complete the poll. Completion reports are sent out to the district in an attempt to get people to complete the poll. If a team has a low completion rate, it doesn't reflect well on that manager. So that creates a flood of email and conversations to "encourage" people to complete the Poll. Call a spade a spade. It's completely hypocritical. Is it really "optional" if a manager is viewed poorly if their team has a low participation rate?
Softies what do you think?
