What are employee surveys? An employee survey is a specific kind of satisfaction survey that focuses on the attitudes and perceptions of the staff. Inquiring to learn about leadership effectiveness, satisfaction with benefits, moods about workplace culture and overall attitudes towards the company brand are crucial to having a productive workplace. Anne M. Mulcahy, former chairperson and CEO of Xerox is quoted saying, "Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person, not just an "employee" - are more productive, more satisfied, more fulfilled. Satisfied employees mean satisfied customers, which leads to profitability." Gauging employee satisfaction is an excellent way to discover a multitude of issues about the performance of your company.

Utilizing Employee Survey Questions for Workplace Feedback

Using Employee Surveys for Assessing Staff Attitudes - Things to Keep In Mind

QuestionPro provides a number of ways in survey creation to attain the attitudes of your employees. There are some risks involved when issuing employee surveys, and not taking sufficient caution can backfire. Consider the following:

Benefits

There can be quite a few benefits from issuing employee surveys:

1. You can discover workplace issues that may be causing employee setbacks; 2. Surveys can lead to managers knowing what really motivates their employees to "go the extra mile"; 3. Supervisor can find out which employees are simply content and which ones are passionately motivated and love their job. All of these points should be considered when planning to ask employee survey questions.

Disadvantages

Despite the many positives of conducting employee surveys, if not done correctly there can exist huge drawbacks. These are just a few things to remember.

1. Think of the literacy of your employees. A question written by you may not be easily understood by everyone taking the survey. Be sure to keep survey questions as clear and straightforward as possible.
2. Be sure to give the respondents plenty options to respond. Employees may become upset if they feel "forced" to answer in a way that doesn't accurately describe their feelings.
3. Take the information and act on it! If the results show that 90% of respondents feel that employee feedback is an issue, perhaps you should call a manager meeting to discuss the issue. In addition, don't diminish expectations. The whole idea of an employee survey is to gauge the attitudes of the staff. Failing to act on issues lowers morale and breaks trust employees have with upper management.

Sending It Out

When you're about to administer the employee survey, keep these points in mind:

1. Discover possible existing problems in the workplace. Identifying known issues can save time and energy.
2. Consider focusing on certain aspects of the company, instead of trying to cover every little detail in one survey.
3. Transparency. Make the results of the survey public. Don't keep any information hidden - it could portray a bad image on the company, in particular, management that promises "change".
