Final reminder to complete your employee survey
24 March 2022
There are just a few days left now before the annual employee survey closes on the 27 March so this is our last opportunity to remind you to complete it, if you haven’t already.
The employee survey is important for 3 key reasons:
- Measurement: You can only improve things if you start by measuring them. And employee engagement is no different. Running a survey allows organisations to see how people feel about working there and identify any potential hotspots. For example, if people answer largely negatively to a question on feeling valued and recognised, the organisation knows it needs to take action in that area.
- Employee voice: The survey acts as a touchpoint in time that allows everyone to have a voice about how they feel in their place of work. These types of surveys are usually run anonymously so that people feel safe and able to answer the questions honestly. But the survey only gives high level quantifiable data and points to potential issues. What it doesn’t do is give real insights as to what is causing the issues – that’s why follow up conversations within teams are critical.
- To make improvements: There is really very little point is asking employees how they feel while at work if there is no intention to take action afterwards. The survey is the starting point, the real work comes next, from team discussions about the results through to taking action to improve.
So far, we have had a brilliant response rate of 39%. Thank you to everyone for your participation, this gives us a great platform to start from and will help us focus our engagement activity across the coming year.
Remember, if you can’t find the email with your unique personalised survey link, you can still complete the survey online. You only need to complete the survey once.
