It is easy to give employee surveys a bashing – but what it comes down to is a willingness to ask the question. Clearly an ill-created survey could throw up more questions than answers, but with the right investment (be that man-hours or ££ – both ultimately!), whether it’s annually, frequent pulse checks, 1-2-1’s, town halls, whatever way you engage, you then have the ability and data (and responsibility) to respond accordingly. Make changes for good, listen to teams, break down barriers. Don’t put it off – ask the question!
