Depending on your culture, you may find that once a year, full engagement surveys aren’t really enough for you. You like to have your finger on the pulse of your organisation, make decisions quickly and monitor engagement levels regularly, not just once a year. Whether you have been running full engagement surveys for years or are about to embark on your first employee survey, a pulse survey might be right for you. Without the complexity and cost of an annual engagement survey a pulse survey can give you quick and straightforward insights to help you make informed choices, fast.
Pulse surveys can make your decisions nimble, timely and effective. Use them as an information tool if you are going through change, such as an acquisition, office move or reorganisation. Most organisations only measure how people felt after the fact, if at all - when it's too late. However, a pulse survey can act as as a quick and engaging way to monitor how people are feeling during the change to enable you to understand what is going well and what you could do differently whilst you can still make a positive impact.
Understanding how employees are feeling real-time enables organisations to make informed decisions about how to engage everyone with the changes more effectively.
However, just because they are quick, doesn’t mean they drop the rigour. We still apply the same strategic approach that we do for the larger surveys to ensure that you are asking the right questions that you need the answers to.
Pulse surveys can come in different formats depending on what you want to do...
Short surveys to individual teams or across the whole organisation, enabling you to see whether you are on target to improve your annual survey priorities
Tailored surveys which track how your employees or particular teams are feeling about specific changes so you can make improvements before it’s too late
Quick and simple indicator survey which will help you understand how people are feeling, how they see the company and what is influencing their engagement at work
