Should I Run Engagement Surveys?
Yes, run engagement surveys.
It is the best way to effectively and efficiently collect systematic feedback from your employees.
The need to understand what’s happening within your workforce is more important today than ever before. Employers who identify and address critical concerns will be rewarded with a healthy bottom line and a loyal workforce.
One way to gauge if you should run a survey is whether you can honestly answer these questions without more information:
- Are your managers effective?
- Is your senior leadership team trusted?
- Are you providing sufficient opportunities for growth?
- Is morale low following downsizing?
- Are you at risk of losing your best people?
Over the past several years, massive restructuring and layoffs have been the mantra of management teams globally. In this economic climate, many employers make the mistake of assuming that workers will be happy just to have a job. The tough management decisions in recent years have often left workers feeling deflated, overworked and lacking motivation. As the market bounces back, the employers who will thrive will retain top talent and re-engage their employees, and keep them engaged.
