Dear Employee:

Welcome to the Employee Survey. We are on a journey to create a workplace that encourages success! A critical component of creating this culture is building a business you recognize as being a great place to work and one that provides you with challenge and recognition. We want to build a thriving and successful business that provides motivation and satisfaction. In order to do so we need to assess how we are doing and understand your thoughts, views and feelings.

We have developed this survey with questions tailored for our staff and business to provide you with an opportunity to anonymously rate many facets of the business. The survey will assess what you value most in your employment and allow you to make positive suggestions for improvement.

The survey is web-based, quick and simple to complete which allows fast reporting and analysis. To ensure your anonymity, the survey is being hosted by an external organization. You will not be required to identify yourself. We want to be very clear that we will not be able to attribute this data to any specific individual and it is not our intention to do so.

We encourage everyone to complete the survey. Please be honest, constructive and thoughtful in your input. The survey is designed to help us understand more about your thoughts and needs to make this a great company.

The results of this survey will be used to help drive our future success. We will report back to you about what you have said and what we plan to do about it. If you have any questions about the process please contact [Contact Person].

Please ensure that your submission is made between . The survey will only be available during these dates.
