Employee engagement surveys have been used in organizations for decades, some more successfully than others. Depending on the employees’ feedback—and, frankly, on the percentage of completed surveys—surveys are a tremendously effective way to understand how engaged the workforce is and to drive change. Organizations large and small should seek opportunities to create and implement employee engagement surveys.

Review the survey questions and strategy prior to rolling it out. Communicate the reasons for the survey and the value the organization expects upon reviewing the results.
