Newsletter March 2024 : Employee surveys are one of the most powerful tools you can use as a business leader

Updated: Mar 1

As a business leader, one of your jobs is to make big difficult decisions.

When making a decision, you take care to look at all of the information you have available to you so that you can make the best, most informed, decisions.

And when it comes to making decisions about your people, it’s important to use the same care and due diligence, because they’re your greatest asset.

What can help you make the best decisions regarding your team?

Employee surveys are the answer. They’re one of the most powerful tools you can use as a business leader.

They help you bridge the gap between what you think is going on vs what is actually going on – because the two can often mean very different things.

Here’s 10 steps you need to follow to conduct the perfect survey:

Step 1: Create a specific focus for your survey based on business outcomes.

Step 2: Decide how you’re going to conduct the survey, whether that’s via an online form or in- person interview for instance.

Step 3: Create questions that will give you the insights you need, in a way that you can measure, benchmark and compare in the future.

Step 4: Pre-frame the survey to your employees and encourage them to take part.

Step 5: Decide how you want your employees to complete the survey.

Step 6: Review results and create findings.

Step 7: Create your action plan.

Step 8: Communicate findings and actions to your team.

Step 9: Act on the results.

Step 10: Check-in 6 months later to see if you’ve made improvements.
