Live polls allow you to measure the workplace in real-time so you can get a sense of where your employees are and to gain feedback on any matter, whether it’s a serious matter or just a fun question to raise engagement. And one last tip from us: consider enabling commenting, so if the team wish to share additional ideas, they can do so in the comments!
