An employee engagement survey measures and assesses how motivated and importantly, engaged your employees are to perform their best at work. A well defined and created employee engagement survey will give insights into employees thoughts, attitudes and overall wellbeing.
Thanks to remote working, it is more important than ever to check in with your employees and understand how engaged they are in their work.
The main purpose of an employee engagement survey is to understand what is driving engagement in the organisation and what are the things that could potentially stop it as well. Being able to have an understanding of employee satisfaction and engagement gives insights into the processes that are working, and the ones which are not.
Good employee engagement surveys help uncover strengths and weaknesses of how the organisation runs, or how the work is carried out, and in return, this gives the feedback to help improve employee engagement in the long run.
In short, an employee engagement survey allows managers and senior officials within an organisation to monitor engagement levels and understand if action needs to be taken wherever necessary.
