He obviously listened enough to answer Dilbert's question. Maybe that last panel should go:

"And do you actually plan to listen to any of us?"

"I'm glad you agree. That's all settled, then"

Management often ask but never care.
I remember one manager asking why people were leaving the company and what could he do to make us stay.
We mentioned a simple one to start with. We asked for flexi-time rather than a start 8:30 finish 5.00 (plus any overtime on top). I would make everyone's life easier if we didn't all leave the area the same time as everyone else at 5.

It was something within his power to change but he dismissed the idea. So we didn't mention any of the bigger problems (eg having management who dismiss ideas from the workers and his attitude towards us) and all left.

I've since heard they have flexi-time in that building.

It takes some guts to ask employees for their opinion. Even more for the employees to tell them and most for the CEO to consider/adapt them.

This is your opportunity to express your gratitude at being in the presence of someone of such unrivaled genius. (Look at how North Koreans respond when asked for their opinion of Kim Jong-un's actions and you will get the idea.)

I'd like to ask for your opinion - It's his way of saying: I want to know who's going to be punish for not being on my side.
