  1. Access Employee Surveys under the Settings tab.
  2. Click the Add New Survey button.

Employee Survey Results

Also Used for Other Survey Types

Employee surveys can be used in a variety of ways including a method to measure an employee’s sense of passion, commitment and motivation within the company. Asking the right survey questions can help build business development and improve employee engagement. 

Additional survey questions may include:

  1. Are you feeling burnt out with your job?
  2. Have you been recognized for your hard work within the last 3 months?
  3. Are you accomplishing any career goals?
  4. On a scale of 1-10, how challenging is your job?
  5. Do you feel safe at work?

Keep in mind that your survey should not just be about you or the company; it should also have direct reflection on your employees’ well-being. 

What Should be Considered Before Conducting a Survey

Since each company is different, it’s important to create a survey that is geared towards your culture and objectives. Employers can expect above a 90% participation rate from employees when results are shared quickly. Managers should respond and provide survey feedback in a timely manner to improve participation rates. 

Other factors to consider when creating an employee survey that you should have on your checklist include:

  • Choose a proper survey tool. Use a survey tool that provides ease of access and completion for both you and your employees. Accessibility is important and should be kept within a program you use on a daily basis.
  • Know what you want to accomplish. Set goals and have an understanding behind what your survey will achieve and solve. This can be an increase in employee production, identifying weaknesses within your organization or opportunities for growth.
  • Make the survey brief. Time is very important in the workplace. Be sure to create a survey that is easy to understand and quick to complete. This is a great way to gain feedback from your employees without them feeling agitated. 
  • Don’t over do it. Prevent pestering your employees with constant surveys. After a while this could produce false information and defeat the purpose. 
  • Measure results and implement them. After you have gathered feedback, act quickly on implementing the results to accomplish your goals. Allowing employees to understand their feedback actually meant something will produce positive company morale and a sense of appreciation. 

We encourage you to take your time when designing a survey and make sure it fits the culture of your company to improve honest feedback rates.
