Request a Story from Others
At GoodSeeker, we recently improved our “Write A Request” feature. Now, you can easily send a request to a coworker, teammate, or partner to inspire them to write a story. It can be a good story about something you heard happened at the office (or on Zoom), a great experience with a client, a shout-out to a coworker, or anything! Here are 4 reasons why you should request someone on your team write a GoodSeeker story:
1. Include Others in the Story Writing Process
It’s no fun to have a few select people writing stories. Get others involved in the process! Not only will this foster inclusion but it will make room for other employees to have a voice as well. Sharing the spotlight is key to making everyone feel seen and heard and most importantly, more connected.
2. Save Time
Maybe you heard a great story about teamwork from the Marketing Department but no one else in Finance or IT heard about it. This is a great time to quickly send a request with the click of a button to the Head of Marketing to capture this story before it’s lost in the dust. Building a library of stories is easy especially when you invite others to share stories too.
3. Encourage Storytelling Culture
Storytelling is part of being human. If you’re looking to humanize your brand and stay more in the loop with each other, requesting someone write a story is a perfect way to do this. Including GoodSeeker in your office community is simple to do and leaves a lasting impact. Sharing insights of experiences not only promotes storytelling culture, but organizational culture as well.
4. Promote Employee Success Stories
You may have heard of employee spotlighting on social media. Companies often use popular hashtags such as #EmployeeSpotlight, #EmployeeAppreciation, #MeetTheTeam, and so much more in an effort to show off their wonderful workers. One thing that may not be taken into consideration when these posts are created are the actual employees' anecdotes about positive experiences they have had at the company. To supplement these posts, GoodSeeker dives into real stories about employees, written by employees. Now that GoodSeeker has partnered with Zapier, these stories can easily be promoted on social media, and give more insight to all of the success stories that happen behind the scenes at an organization.
Why keep a good story hidden? If you heard a story from your boss or co-worker, whether it be motivating, true to your company’s core values, or simply high-five worthy, make sure it’s shared with the rest of your team! GoodSeeker’s Story Generator makes it easy for anyone on your team to reflect on the past week and craft a story. At the end of the day, GoodSeeker stories are an easy way to gain more visibility, boost company morale, and keep culture intact.
