10 Helpful Tips for Employee Engagement Surveys

1. Define the objectives of your survey

Set out clear goals you wish to pursue in carrying out your employee engagement survey. From these goals, you will derive the best way to plan and conduct your survey.

2. Determine which departments to survey

The goals of your survey will also help you identify which specific business departments you need to survey – if not all of them.

3. Integrate employee representatives into organizing the survey

Employee representatives can help shape the survey questions so that they cover key employee concerns.

4. Distribute tasks and create a timetable

Bring together a project team to carry out the survey. You need to assign tasks and deadlines to each team member.

5. Save time and money – conduct employee engagement surveys online

Online surveys offer a convenient and secure survey experience. Create questionnaires easily online and receive legally-valid and secure results quickly.

6. Creating the survey: respect neutrality

The wording of questions and possible answers should not influence respondents.

Let your employees know why you are conducting the survey so they are ready to give constructive feedback.

9. Make a checklist for implementing the survey

Provide a checklist so that no step is forgotten in organizing and implementing your employee engagement survey.
