A lot goes into carrying out a successful employee engagement survey. But mistakes can happen along the way. Here are three of the six most common:

  1. Your employee engagement survey isn’t backed by research. With all of the technology available these days, it’s tempting to craft the survey yourself. And with 100+ providers out there, it’s entirely possible you’re working with someone who lacks the right qualifications to handle your sensitive data.
  2. Your survey asks the wrong questions or bad questions. What your survey asks employees has a direct impact on the quality of data it yields. This includes leading or biased statements, double-barreled questions, ambiguity, and more.
  3. You can’t make sense of the survey data. Numbers, figures, and overly complicated charts make it difficult to understand what’s going on inside your culture. As a result, it’s almost impossible for you to move from data to insights and action.
