The Search for the Right Sample Questions


Do you ever wonder whether the survey you’re creating is any good? How do you know that your questions are giving you the information you need in order to make good decisions? You probably start the survey creation process by searching for sample questions to point you in the right direction. Here are some tips to help guide you – and give you the confidence that you’re asking the right questions.

Getting Clear About Your Goals

To ask the right questions, you need to be clear about your goals for sending out the survey. The key is to be specific about the feedback you want. Let’s imagine that you’re an HR pro who wants to create a better work environment. That’s quite broad in scope, so you’ll need to ask about each key area individually (e.g. manager skill level, benefits, parking availability, etc.). Gathering feedback from employees about each particular issue will allow you to collect actionable information with your survey.
