Understanding your staff through employee surveys

Employee surveys, have you used them? Would you?

Whether it’s how your employees rate their job satisfaction or their contentment with benefits and remuneration, employee surveys can help you gain a better understanding.

So, when it comes to getting honest answers to questions that might make some staff feel uneasy, what can you do?

Providing an opportunity for staff to pen their thoughts and feelings is a great way to encourage honest feedback. Consider using an online platform like Survey Monkey so where practically possible, staff can opt to be anonymous.

So, what type of feedback should you be seeking?

  • Job satisfaction
  • Manager effectiveness
  • Policies and procedures
  • Benefits and remuneration
  • Professional development and job training
  • Workplace culture

Remember to read the feedback you receive and where practically possible make transparent strides to show that you are listening. It might be with a follow-up email or through implementing changes your team has suggested.
