How can you better understand what encourages your employees to drive profitability and remain committed to your organization? By conducting frequent employee surveys.
An employee engagement survey is a form of quantitative research where your staff becomes the focal point of your research.
Partnering these efforts with an employee engagement survey company will help target what is most valuable to your staff and what improvements need to be made.
Create a positive working environment with dedicated employees by using a third party to conduct an employee engagement survey. The questionnaire will identify key improvement areas which drive overall employee satisfaction.
1. Customized survey template
When working with a third-party market research company, you will receive a custom employee survey questionnaire, designed specifically for your organization. An employee engagement company will use simple techniques to determine priority areas of improvement and priority areas of strength.
From here, the market research company will create unique questions reflective of your employees needs and wants. By partnering with a third party, you’ll have the piece of mind knowing you are asking the right questions.
Another key benefit of using an employee survey company is the ability to benchmark results. These third-party companies have access to benchmark data to compare your employee survey results to peers in your industry. This may include geographical comparisons or industry comparisons.
2. Unbiased employee survey questions
It doesn’t have to be pinpointed to an increase in revenue, as shown in the survey question by the employer. A “better” company could mean a multitude of improvements – whether it be the organization’s culture, work/life balance, leadership team, etc.
One of the benefits of using an employee survey company, is having a third-party ask questions in a general way to generate greater employee feedback.
3. Open communication with staff
Honesty among staff is a key factor for success within any organization. But how comfortable are employees with being completely transparent with their superiors?
In a recent survey 48% of workers felt their employee surveys did not provide an honest and accurate employee assessment.
Employees fear they will be penalized when providing their honest feedback to employers. This discrepancy can lead to misleading employee engagement survey results by not reflecting the real issues staff members are having at work.
This is why Voice of Employee (VoE) research is essential to any organization. With survey results delivered from a third-party, employees are less concerned with being reprimanded. This privacy allows for genuine feedback and complete honesty.
