Although some HR commentators will tell you that the annual employee survey is dead, that’s simply not true, even if other forms of employee feedback are on the rise.
An employee survey is an opportunity to get a deep and broad snapshot of employee perceptions, opinions, engagement and other aspects of the people experience, at a point in time. This gives you a baseline to measure against, for example in more regular pulse surveys.
An annual survey will allow you to look back and assess progress on your people initiatives, and forward to identify emerging opportunities for change.
People see employee surveys as important and value the opportunity they provide to make themselves heard – If you act on their feedback.
The fact that the annual survey is a substantial commitment means that it gets attention at board level, and enables data-driven, strategic decision-making.
Talk to us about choosing the right mix of employee feedback modules for your organisation, and how we can help you maximise value from our flexible platform.
It would be wrong of us to suggest that running a company-wide employee survey is easy. It does require a significant investment in time and effort. If they are done well, however, employee surveys can show you where your people are engaged or not, and broadly why.
We’re here to make sure that from survey design, through driving response rates and turning insight into action, you get the best possible results from the process.
People also often have unreasonable expectations of their Employee Survey. When done well, it is important strategic tool that helps you direct your attention where it might be most beneficial.
Sometimes you do need to dig a bit deeper, and it’s always a good idea to involve employees in dialogue about what the results mean to them.
It’s important to use the right tools for the right job, and what’s appropriate for your organisation depends on your strategic, operational and cultural context. But rather than being competing alternatives, annual and pulse surveys – or indeed lifecycle or wellbeing surveys – can be complimentary tools.
