Is your intra-team communication exceptional, yet, you are experiencing inter-team communication issues? Are you working on creating a culture supportive of diversity and inclusion, but the results aren't up to your expectations? Are you interested in whether your employees are satisfied with your company and what would motivate them at work? We are eager to help you find the answers and resolve potential issues you might be facing.
In order to find the most effective solution which is not only perspective in the long-term, but also remunerative, it is necessary to learn about all aspects of the problem. Your employees have all the answers to what needs to be done. But how to obtain them and use them efficiently to their benefit?
Online company surveys create a platform for expressing opinions, thoughts, emotions, and ideas in complete anonymity and comfort. All of these are extremely valuable because they provide information about the strengths of the company and where the employees see room for change. Without unnecessary assumptions and conjectures.
We can help you ask just the right questions with high informative value, meaning the information collected has importance for the organization. Data with high importance can be statistically analyzed, compared, and evaluated so that you can build upon them. Gather information about professional development preferences (indoor, outdoor, individual or group, online or face-to-face, 2-day without a pause or shorter sections, etc.) and anticipate their development needs.
It´s always good to add some little extra to your survey. One option is to add a section for open-ended comments.
Anonymity, specifically, is one of the key components of collecting honest answers. It ensures people that there won´t be any consequences if they give a negative or disfavoring opinion.
"I have had the opportunity to work with a team of experts, standing behind inmetric solutions, for a couple of years now. Our long-term cooperation is the key to why we are always able to receive a product/service, which is tailor-made for our current needs. In the topic of requesting feedback on our products and services from customers, we managed to create a complex survey, which accurately identified our strengths and weaknesses. We were able to specify the necessary steps we had to undertake to maintain our customers in the course of upcoming years. We were able to recognize the exact areas, which had to undergo change fast, in order for our firm to grow further. Due to a thorough analysis of data from the survey, we were able to improve in the exact areas, where it was necessary. Thus, we invested our energy in the right direction and did not spend it there, where the customer does not find it important."

It always seems to be one of the key steps to be left out. Emphasize that the outcomes will have a direct impact on their career development opportunities, they can have access to more specialized training, workshops, whatever options you might offer. Make your survey sexy. 😊 Your employees deserve to know what their opinion is collected for, how is it going to be evaluated, and what are you going to do with it. Make it as exciting and interactive as possible. A significant percentage of people do not finish the surveys, because they find them boring, lengthy, questions seem to be irrelevant and just out of space.
Sharing the results should be an unthinkable part of each survey. Make them feel that their opinion does matter, and based on their feedback something may change in the company. This way you motivate them to participate perhaps another time. 😉
There are many potential areas of focus of company surveys. As an inspiration, we provide the following...
The topic of company diversity has been justifiably moving into the spotlight in recent years. Although the topic may seem straightforward at first sight, the important question one should initially ask is „Is our company ready for this topic?“. In this area of interest, we look into whether the firm culture, atmosphere, and employees themselves are favorable to developing diversity. Together we shall find the factors that could potentially be hindering its development as well as the ones facilitating it. With these findings on hand, we can work towards the goal and satisfaction of all parties, whether it is through enlightenment, workshops, or coaching.
Nowadays, many employers are aware that the more satisfied their employees are, the higher the quality work they can produce. However, not always do the workplace, co-workers, remuneration, development opportunities and job duties match the employees' expectations. The satisfaction survey provides them with the opportunity to anonymously express what hinders their satisfaction and what should change in order for them to be satisfied. The obtained answers will direct us towards the specific topics it is important to address in the given company from a long-term and short-term perspective.
Company communication survey
Interpersonal communication in the work environment is essential – it is self-evident but more demanding and complex than it might appear. It might occur that communication in your team is friendly and effective, but communication coming from superiors or between departments is not ideal. In such a case, it is desirable to get to the root of the issue. Together we can seize the opportunities for improvement which will emerge from the survey, strengthen communication and make it effective throughout the company.
Employee engagement survey
One of the most popular topics in the area of company surveys is without doubt engagement and employee motivation. It is understandable that employers want their employees to be motivated to give high performance at work. However, the reality is sometimes different. In order to set up a plan for either employee development or company changes, it is useful to obtain information directly from the employees about how and where to create motivational changes. Together we will then find the means to put them into practice.
Company culture survey
One can work better in a pleasant workplace atmosphere. If you ever feel a sense of "thick air" at your workplace, it may be the result of your company culture. With the help of the company culture survey, you will learn about how your employees perceive your company, whether you have built the cornerstones for friendly and cohesive work and personal relationships, but also how to make the workplace a place your employees enjoy returning to every day.
If you feel your company needs to focus its attention on another area, don't hesitate to contact us. We offer fully customizable surveys where we help you decide on the topic of most relevance and utility for your company.
