Staff Employee Surveys

Today so many staff grew up with the internet. They have Facebook and Twitter, access to Glassdoor, social media and mobile phones. They are used to giving feedback with a single swipe of the thumb. As a result, the annual, long staff survey is irritating and anachronistic to most staff. Employees want to give feedback in a relevant and timely way. They want it to be a quick process, they want it to be listened to, and more than anything, they want it to be easy. At the same time, access to regular staff feedback makes mangers more accountable and effective.

In this section, you’ll find some of the latest reading, research and insight into the way staff surveys are changing and how to adapt yours (or bring in whole new methods) to ensure you’re hearing from your employees. If you listen to them regularly, you’ll give yourself the best opportunity to keep morale and retention as high as possible.
