Well-crafted employee surveys can improve business results. But they’re not the same as surveys of the general public. They have specific opportunities and constraints.
During this presentation, you’ll learn the who, what, how and why of employee surveys. We’ll cover writing, conducting, analyzing, and presenting employee surveys within organizations.

The why and what of company surveys, how constructs are measured, and overcoming management resistance. This section will cover the types of questions that work best in employee surveys, including standard batteries and scale point recommendations.
Administrative best practices such as governance, principles, process, and practices that enhance data utilization. Dos and don’ts in conducting employee surveys; the kinds of response rates you need and should expect.
Analysis and Presentation Recommendations. Ways employee surveys are typically analyzed, including inferential and descriptive analyses; linking analyses to business results; visual displays that are most successful with senior executives.
