The company sent out an anonymous survey to everyone. I figured out by clearing my browser history I could fill out the survey multiple times. So I did that to make sure my feelings carried more weight.
The CEO was so pleased that my department had the highest response rate. Most I talked to in my department didn't even fill it out.
The CEO noticed a huge discrepancy in employee satisfaction across departments. My department had very low ratings (I'm pretty sure my 15+ submissions are to blame.)
Now the CEO is planning to have focus sessions with my department and many additional meetings to improve morale and get face to face feedback. People in my department hate the thought of additional meetings, they don't understand how we had over 90% response rate to the survey and they wish that we could focus on the work.
This seems to have back-fired. Or maybe it will lead to positive changes. I don't know. If I come clean about it can I do so anonymously to avoid repurcussions and a bad reputation?
