A brief introduction describes the survey process.
Due to its continued commitment to the development of the organization and its staff, in particular improving the organizational culture, [Company] elected to conduct an Employee Opinion survey.

The survey examines each employee's viewpoint on a variety of organizational topics including safety, training, career development and communication. The hope is to use the input to help guide actions related to improving the organizational culture. HR-Survey worked closely with [Company] to design a questionnaire that fulfilled the requirements of the organization.

The survey itself was launched . During this period the survey was administered to employees via a web link on a voluntary basis. Employees were allowed time during their working day to complete the survey and due to the nature of the web link were able to respond on a confidential and honest basis as HR-Survey handled the administration of the survey responses.
