Take the pulse to see where it’s at
Recent years have seen an accompanying move into shorter, more focussed studies alongside larger annual reviews as technology has allowed the real-time ‘pulse’ survey to grow in importance. Rather than a big-picture look at the organisation as a whole, pulse surveys can give management instant feedback and insight that the larger annual survey is unable to provide. Weekly or monthly surveys mean that managers can take action as problems arise – rather than after they have transpired when they may be harder to resolve. The principles for building a quick weekly survey are aligned with those of the annual survey. Know what you want to find out, make questions clear and concise and ensure that you act on the responses received. It is telling that when employee feedback is obtained on a regular basis, staff turnover levels are 14.9% lower than for employees who receive no feedback (Gallup), demonstrating significant savings these organisations not having to find, onboard and train new staff as disillusioned employees move on.
Schoop’s flexible Forms and Surveys feature – do it your way
However you want to do it, learning more about your workforce’s perceptions of their workplace and opinions on their jobs and management will only help, as long as you are acting on your findings. Schoop’s Employee Engagement app is designed to make it easy to build any type of survey you require. With unlimited questions, you can carry out an annual deep-dive, making questions multiple choice, ranking by number or even leave space for unlimited text responses. Not everyone will rush to respond to questions, so forms can be set to push recipients to return their responses, ensuring that everyone gets their say. And when all the results are in, analytics in the form of charts and graphs deliver a clear understanding of responses that can be used in reports.
