The performance, functionality and features you need to create engaging employee surveys that deliver for your business
Employee surveys can provide an extremely powerful tool for enacting positive change throughout your business. But it’s important to ensure they are effectively planned, designed and reported on, if you are to the achieve the increased workforce contentment, motivation and productivity levels you need.
Why measure employee satisfaction?
Most businesses track customer satisfaction, but don’t regularly measure employee satisfaction. However, by executing a long-term strategy of retaining motivated employees that provide great service, you will increase customer satisfaction and profitability.
Unhappy employees who leave your company and voice their grievances are detrimental to your brand. Employee focused strategy has become the norm, not the exception in thriving companies and consumers look favourably on organisations investing in people, rather than profits.
By engaging directly with your employees, you can identify what is working well and what needs improving. For example, by frequently using pulse surveys as well as conducting more in-depth satisfaction surveys, you can stay on top of what makes your business effective, allowing you to address issues before they impact customer satisfaction.

The benefits of running surveys in the workplace
Your survey could be designed to measure employee satisfaction or motivation. Or staff members’ experiences of and feelings about the workplace, colleagues and management. Or to get feedback on induction and training, both before and after delivery. These are just a few uses to which surveys can be put.
Whatever you choose to measure, a well-designed employee survey is one of the most efficient ways to facilitate two-way communications and better understand what delights or concerns staff. The act of asking for feedback can itself improve morale, and bring benefits to the business:
