A study from Gallup shared that the percentage of American workers who believe that their organization cares about their overall well-being halved between 2020 and 2022, falling from a record high of 49% early in the pandemic to a near decade low of 24%.
Most leaders are astounded by that stat. Is it possible that your people’s experience is different than your perception?
The best way to measure how your staff truly feels about your organization is through an employee engagement survey.
There are numerous tools in the marketplace to measure employee engagement, but most surveys are a one-time snapshot of employee engagement. What's missing is the ability to measure engagement over time as you respond to the feedback provided and make changes to meet the needs presented in the results.
To build a survey that can measure ongoing progress, you'll want to ensure you're using questions that are research-based and consistent.
That's why we've done the heavy lifting for you by creating the Complete List of Employee Engagement Questions. We've listed out questions that are backed by research to deliver data that you can trust to assess your employee engagement. Why? Let's break it down.
Determining The Right Questions For Your Employee Engagement Survey
High-performing teams share three primary characteristics: rapport, maximization, and clarity. Rapport is built when your team believes that you are on their side and invested in their growth. Maximization finds ways to utilize the individual strengths of members of your team. Clarity seeks to create alignment between the goals of individuals and the mission and vision of your organization.
When these three characteristics exist across a team, there is a direct correlation to future increased outputs and engagement. Teams that rank in the top 20% for rapport see 41% less absenteeism, 59% less employee turnover, and a 66% increase in employee wellness.
Why share all of that? Because our Complete List of Employee Engagement Questions is built to measure each of the three components that make up the characteristics of a high-performing team. These components are critical to understanding the moral on your team.
How To Build Your Employee Engagement Survey
While building a survey in-house using a tool like Survey Monkey is possible, it's a heavy lift to determine the right questions that will deliver actionable results, derive meaningful data from the results, and compare feedback over time. One-time surveys without detailed yet simple measurements that allow you to analyze and break down the data you derive are interesting at best. Wouldn't it be more effective if instead, you were able to send out a survey and immediately see results broken down by department and easy to track overtime? Wouldn't it be even better if you were able to receive practical next steps depending on where your scores land?
