In addition to the Sentiment Overview analytics, the platform also provides more concentrated views of the sentiment within the business. Specifically, those with access to the analytics area can choose to view sentiment relating only to Forms, including individual forms, Goal Comments, Diary Notes and Performance Management Issues.
The value of this is that as the system administrator you can really narrow down where the positive or negative sentiment is originating from. Is it the Goals that are causing negative sentiment? Is one particular form generating negative sentiment? Is positive sentiment being created through the use of diary notes for recognition?
Whatever the answers may be, your ability to identify the cause of sentiment will allow you to act on this information to provide a motivated and productive workforce.
