Employee engagement surveys can seem like a chore, both for those who conduct them and for those who have to answer them. However, these surveys are extremely useful, both for gathering employee opinions and for improving their working conditions. This is to increase the commitment of employees. Because there is nothing more rewarding than to feel listened to.
What themes and questions should these employee surveys cover? We take stock.
Questions and themes to address in employee surveys and polls
Questions on well-being:
Starting with questions about well-being allows employees who answer the satisfaction survey to feel directly concerned and considered. They are therefore more motivated and comfortable answering the questions.
– Do you enjoy working here?
– Do you feel comfortable in your workspace?
– Do you feel that the company cares enough about your development?
– Do you feel your work at the company is valued enough?
– Do you have realistic suggestions for improving the quality of your work environment?
– Do you feel that the cohesion between the different members of your team is healthy?
– Do you feel useful in your work? Do you feel you are accomplishing something?
Questions about company effectiveness:
After asking if employees feel fulfilled, the next most interesting and logical step would be to ask about the business side of the work environment.
– Do you have all the information and equipment you need to do your job properly?
– How would you rate the communication between your team members?
– Do you feel that your opinion is taken into account when decisions are made?
– How would you rate your workload? Is it well distributed among your team members?
– Do you feel that you are becoming more competent over time?
– Do you have any suggestions for improving the company’s efficiency?
Moreover, questions about possible proposals are all too often forgotten. They allow the respondent to feel heard, but also to possibly receive a relevant proposal.
Increase employee commitment by stimulating the feedback culture
Employee engagement is a strategic lever for productivity, performance and satisfaction that companies should pay attention to.
Employees who feel heard and who see that their opinions are really taken into account will be more engaged and motivated in their work. This contributes to increasing their commitment and productivity.
