Ask the Right Questions

For over a decade, thousands of organisations have used SurveyMonkey to listen to their employees. But many of these surveys aren’t asking the right questions in order to properly assess employee engagement and satisfaction. We’ve worked together to identify these essential questions and created a survey to address these issues: the Employee Engagement Survey.

Research suggests that it’s critical to assess employees’ opinions of their own engagement as well as their perceptions of their colleagues’ conduct. Furthermore, it’s important to assess the conditions of engagement to diagnose areas for improvement. This survey comprehensively addresses these key areas by using a series of scales:

What makes this survey different?

The survey was adapted from a large body of pre-existing work, including: Macey and Schneider’s work engagement theory, a thorough review of literature and related empirical research as well as input from experts concerning employee relations. Survey items were developed based on a psychometric review of a random sample of 5,000 employees. In addition, a subject matter expert (SME) workshop created a parallel set of items to measure employee engagement and conditions affecting engagement.
