Sleepless in HR
Are you handling your employee surveys yourself? Maybe it’s time to get some expert back up?
Employee engagement surveys are often thought of as one of those things than can easily be done in-house. After all, they are usually just once a year and there are lots of online survey apps that can help you pull it all together.
However, this is not always as easy as it sounds. The most important thing from the outset is to ensure that you are asking the right questions.
The design of the survey is everything.
You don’t need reams of questions, you just need to be asking the right questions and to do this, you need to be clear on what it is that you want to achieve.
We are engagement experts and we spend a lot of time up front with our clients working through what it is they want to achieve and then designing questions to give them the answers they are looking for. In our view, this is the most important part of the process and one which we approach with rigour, applying both qualitative and quantitative research methods to ensure that once the survey launches to their employees the right data is being collected.
The worst position to be in is ending up with more queries being raised once you have The results.
If you are going it alone, the interpretation of The results may give you sleepless nights! How are you going to find the time to go through hundreds, maybe even thousands of entries of raw data and turn them into something meaningful that the business can action? How long have you got?
We’ve been doing this a long time and have built our own technology. It’s a slick piece of kit which is super flexible so that we can really tailor each survey to the individual clients (there’s no one size fits all here thank you very much!). When it comes to the analysis, we can zip through thousands of surveys and have robust results with clear actionable insights ready to present in around two weeks – or if we are using one of our pulse surveys, results can actually be viewed real time!
One of the things we know our clients love about us is that we don't deliver their survey and then run for the hills! You can’t be an expert in everything, so let us be the engagement guru, guiding you every step of the way.
From helping you to be clear on what you want to achieve and how to go about it, to presenting The results and gaining stakeholder buy-in as well as practical support throughout the survey and results cascade.
And the best bit… we don’t charge you every time you need something.
So if you are going it alone and trying to do an internal survey with no support, then perhaps you need some back up.
Give us a call.
