3 Top Employee Survey Headaches and How to Overcome Them
- Asking the right questions
If you don’t prompt your employees with the right questions, you end up with messy surveys, data that you can’t interpret and the result is a workforce who feels unheard. Most companies stick to general questions to try to capture a larger audience. When formulating your questions, start with an objective. Why are you creating the survey and what are you trying to achieve with the responses? Then prepare the leading questions.
Bayzat’s Employee Survey Feature Release comes with 6 preset survey types ranging from quick pulse surveys to employee engagement and includes the set of questions for each. Plus, you can create your own from scratch with our easy-to-use customisable fields.
- Collating the results
It can be a huge admin task following up on your respondents, yet alone collecting the results of any survey. Especially if you run a larger organization. You are not only contending with your employees time to complete the survey, but managing your own workload as an HR manager to prepare and deploy it. The result is often that you have a whole load of data and aren’t sure how to collate the responses or prepare a report that is easy to interpret for your seniors.
With Bayzat’s Employee Survey you can easily collect feedback from large groups of employees, obtaining actionable insights and driving your employee experience. It has automated reminders and notifications to encourage your workforce to complete their survey from their mobile devices.
Plus, you can track your survey responses to see who has responded and all your data will be collated for you, making it faster and easier to pull reports.
- Taking action
Employees start to suffer from survey fatigue and disengagement when they feel unheard. It’s all fair and well to send a survey, but if you aren’t going to put measures in place to correct the issues addressed, employees will become disengaged and likely to either not respond to any further surveys, or worse, leave the organization.
Once you have sent your report or findings to your decision makers, remember to share your findings and action items with your employees.
- Decide how often you should send a survey out
- Tell your employees the reason why you are doing the survey
- Reassure them that their responses are anonymous
- Do what you say! Take action based on your survey responses to show your people that you are listening
- Map out a plan to implement any small changes
- Share your survey findings and the steps you are going to take to overcome the challenges you discovered
