Employee Opinion Survey Sample 14


Employee Survey

Welcome to the [Company] Employee Survey.

I have spoken to most of our people, either one on one, in small groups or at our quarterly meetings about my desire to create an environment within [Company] that encourages success. A critical component of creating this environment is building a business where you, our people, recognize our company as being a great place to work and one that provides you with challenge and recognition.

[Company] has clearly undertaken a significant amount of change over the last few years, much of this change affecting the roles of our people, our processes, and our means of communication. [Company] understands that to build and maintain a thriving and successful business, and one which provides this motivation and satisfaction to our people, we need to assess how we are doing and understand your current thoughts, views and feelings on a regular basis.

We fully understand that it is very difficult for people to be truly honest about their most critical thoughts on the company, and that not everyone will feel comfortable sharing their views openly with management in meetings or discussion forums.

To find an alternate way of accessing your views we have built an employee survey, with questions tailored to our businesses and people. You will be asked to anonymously rate many facets of the business, assess what you value most in your employment here, but also to make positive suggestions for improvement. Personally, I would like to know what you think about your company, its direction, its management and your job.

The survey is web-based to make it quick and simple for all of us to complete, and for fast reporting and analysis. To ensure we have maximum anonymity, the survey is being hosted by an external organization and you will not be required to identify yourself when completing your input. We will ask from some demographic data however to ensure we can make the best possible interpretation of the results and focus our actions on the areas of most need. We will also ask you some questions about your immediate manager and management in general. We need 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.

I encourage every employee to complete the survey, to be very honest but also constructive and thoughtful in their input, and most of all to understand that the goal of the survey is to help [Company] understand more about the key areas it needs to work on to make it an Employer of Choice.

Immediately following this note is the employee satisfaction survey input form. It should take approximately 20 - 25 minutes to complete.

The results of this survey will be used to help drive our future success and as such it is critical that we are transparent in our report back to you about what you have said, but also what we plan to do about it. That said, please remember that we are still changing and developing many facets of our company, and the process of creating the right culture and employment offering cannot be built overnight.

Clearly I will look for your involvement in the action plans which come out of this work and I already looking ahead to the next survey where we will be able to track our success and improvements!

If you have any concerns about the process, confidentiality, or any other issue please talk to your local HR manager.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR SUBMISSION IS MADE NO LATER THAN ____, __th of NOVEMBER

Thank you for your participation in the survey. I look forward to seeing the analysis of your responses and I am hoping for close to 100% participation.

Chief Executive Officer
