Employee Satisfaction Surveys
In the absence of information about how employees view the workplace, decisions
affecting productivity, morale, turnover, pay, and benefits costs are made in
an information vacuum. Money and resources directed toward items that don't
need improvement (or, worse yet, result in decline) in these items are
essentially wasted. If a company were to focus resources on improving a
particular benefit when the real need employees have is more training and
better communication, the end result would be a more costly benefits program
than necessary and continued employee frustration.
Employees appreciate being asked for their opinions, and appreciate it all the
more when survey results are acted upon. When changes are made that make
employees feel better about coming to work, several benefits, aside from
decreased turnover, can result. These include:
More energetic employees,
Increased productivity, as happier employees will tend to "go the extra
Improved teamwork, as employees get to know each other better (since they are
Higher quality products and services, due to a more competent, energized
workforce and improved processes (processes identified in need of improvement
in the survey),
More satisfied customers, due to the higher quality products, services, and
service levels provided by the energized workforce.
Advances in technology have made it possible for management to act on survey
results in a very timely manner. It is common for our clients to have survey
results, (including an analysis of strengths and weaknesses, and
recommendations), in hand within four weeks after contacting us.

their fit and future within it.
High or growing turnover rate. While some industries have a naturally high
turnover, growing turnover is a problem for any organization. If your absolute
level of turnover exceeds the industry average, you have a problem that an
employee satisfaction survey is the first step to solving.
Excessive rumors. A strong rumor mill is symptomatic of other problems in the
organization. These can include communications, trust, and fear. Only a survey
can uncover the extent to which any of these issues exists.
Planned or recent organizational changes, including change of leadership.
Change can be difficult for many people. If not handled properly, productivity
and profits can decline.
Highly competitive industry. In a highly competitive industry, turnover
minimization and productivity and creativity maximization are keys to success.

"fixed" and how much "fixing" it needs to maximize return on invested money and
