Pulse surveys come in many shapes and sizes. A Pulse survey may include one question sent out each week to all employees, or it may be a handful of 4-5 short questions sent out quarterly to a random employee segment. It could also refer to a specific set of questions designed to follow-up (3, 6 or 9 months) after a full employee engagement survey. Many of our clients choose to deploy a short pulse survey to measure the impact of their action planning efforts. The pulse survey data will help you fine tune your strategy and make any required adjustments.

TalentGage Pulse Survey provides a quick organizational health check in the form of a short five to ten-minute survey. The Pulse survey is typically conducted in between conducting full engagement surveys and is used as an opportunity to check in with employees. This allows organizations to measure progress on the key drivers that came out of their engagement survey and quickly identify new areas of focus that may be emerging. Our Pulse Survey+ provides you with some extra flexibility when it comes to customization of your survey.
