Step 2 - Develop Your Questionnaire

We will consult with you regarding customization of the survey that best meets your needs. Following our initial consultations, we make specific recommendations on survey and report template design that aligns with your business goals.

Standard Questionnaire (minor changes only): TalentMap provides advice on the design and development of the survey questions specific to your requirements. For clients who want to measure and benchmark employee engagement, we recommend starting with our time-tested employee engagement survey:  TalentGage Classic (TGC). This proven, valid, and reliable instrument includes key engagement and culture questions as the starting point for the design of your questions.  It is composed of 68 questions (items) with answers based on a 5 point Likert scale. The questionnaire is very user-friendly and takes about 20 minutes to complete. There is also ample opportunity for employees to provide voluntary open-ended comments for each survey dimension.

We are able to accommodate virtually any request including adding in custom questions, changing words, deleting questions, adding custom dimensions. A Recent example of customized dimension includes Safety, Business Strategy and Corporate Social Responsibility.

Standard Questionnaire with Customization (up to 20 changes): Many clients deploy our standard TGC without change or customization.  However, we support clients who require customization with our TalentGage Classic Plus offering. This product allows clients to add edit or delete up to 20 items (questions).

For Clients who want to Leverage Previous (in-house or other) Questionnaires:  We support clients who have conducted previous surveys with another survey vendor and who want to reuse important items (questions).  This can be helpful when looking for trends. A key part of our process for all new clients is to review and analyze any existing survey data from prior surveys.This process confers a number of important benefits, including in particular that you can meet your business objectives while maintaining high questionnaire standards and statistical rigor. This step may include confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) of previous survey results to identify ‘redundant’ items (questions).
