Learnings From Readers’ Perspective

Circulated: August 30, 2019

Yesterday we sent out a survey to Amazonians who subscribe to Fact of the Day 1. Here’s what you said:

Roses: a highlight, success, or positive memory.

  • I love when a fact sparks a creative conversation with my team.

  • Quick, easily digestible fact — often applicable to the work I do.

  • I like the daily surprise of different topics.

  • I love learning about other parts of Amazon that I don’t see day-to-day.

  • Love the handwritten whiteboard format — somehow feel it’s more engaging than the typed version.

Thorns: a low point, failure, or negative memory.

  • I wish there was a way to search old facts by subject or topic.

  • Sometimes the image is too big for my screen.

  • They are usually US focused; I would like more international facts.

  • The images take up a lot of space in my inbox.

Bud: a new idea, something you’re looking forward to, or a growth opportunity.

  • Perhaps teams could submit facts to educate on happenings around Amazon.

  • More Amazon lore, dogma, witticisms, mistakes leading to innovation.

  • We should recommend this list during New Hire Orientation.

  • Create a place for follow-up discussion like a Chime group or a Forum.

  • Have you thought about making facts interactive and sharing the results the next day?
