Annual Satisfaction Survey. The combination of these three words spark unease in managers and employees worldwide. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Surveying employees is a key engagement metric for all companies and form the basis of many HR strategies. Often dreaded by all involved, they evolved as part of company culture for a reason: to measure, and hopefully improve, employee engagement.

However, more often than not, they’re poorly planned, receive a low response rate, and are time-consuming to analyze; the potential for impact often falling into oblivion when no action is taken. But these faults lie in the execution, not in the idea of surveying itself.
