Staff Surveys: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Many companies run annual staff satisfaction and staff engagement surveys but few derive real value from the exercise. This highly interactive workshop will explore why this is. It will consider the pitfalls and best practice when it comes to polling employee sentiment. This is a very outcomes-based session where people will leave with clear and realistic actions.
Prior to the workshop, participants will be invited to complete a short work and well-being assessment which evaluates the impact that their work has on their overall health and performance.
The workshop is divided into three parts:
- A quick overview of the scientific research which considers staff surveys, performance and good measurement practices together with some case studies.
- Feedback of people’s results from the work and well-being assessment (these will be anonymized to protect confidentiality) .
- A facilitated discussion to troubleshoot participants’ current staff survey practices so they can identify where improvements can be made.
People will leave this workshop with:
- A new understanding of good measurement practices .
- A list of practical actions on how their existing staff surveys can be improved which can be applied immediately.
- An appreciation of what they can do for their staff where there might be performance issues such as poor attendance, low morale and high attrition.
- Some new insights into their own health and well-being and how this may be better managed.
- I changed from initially being a bit sceptical about undertaking this work, to being its greatest advocate!
