In a previous life working for Megacorp Inc., I shared some responsibility for surveying staff on how they felt about working there. In common with most employee surveys, we forced anonymity on our people. Apparently this was done so that staff could speak up, and feedback honestly and openly, without fear of retribution. What this enforced anonymity indicates to me is that the business has a deeper problem, simply one of a lack of trust. What led me to believe this?
