“Employee Engagement” can seem like a buzzword, but investing in it delivers concrete results. As Simon Sinek, founder of “Start With Why” puts it, “When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute.”
Surveys are one of the most actionable tools to help you increase engagement in your company or team. Here’s how you can run them better, and make them matter.
Why Run Surveys?
Surveys communicate you care about employee’s perspectives and experiences, surface both positives and challenges in the company, give employees a voice, increase engagement, and can be used to involve employees in solutions.
Managers and Teams
Surveys can allow managers to understand team needs, check their team’s “pulse,” use feedback and data to become better leaders, measure the impact of initiatives, and achieve team goals.
If you have good data on employee engagement and perspectives across your company, you can take meaningful steps to improve engagement by targeting the areas that matter most to your employees, and you can track the impact of measures that you have taken.
