While all employees have opinions and ideas it is often difficult to gain feedback from them about such topics as new product introductions, employee satisfaction, general company policies and procedures, and more. Employee surveys can be a valuable tool, but as Reuven Gorsht points out in this recent Forbes post, the average employee survey response rate is just a meager 30%-40%. He offers some very valid points aimed at increasing employee participation and engagement. In addition to these, consider incorporating employee surveys into your employee recognition program.
A capable incentive and employee recognition platform will allow for multiple formats, scheduled distribution, and seamless integration with your ongoing program. While surveys gauge satisfaction, collect ideas and gain feedback, quizzes are perfect for product introductions, policy changes, coaching, and education. Surveys and quizzes (when part of an employee recognition program) help increase engagement because participants are awarded points for on-time and satisfactory completion. The process also adds an element of fun to what could normally be perceived as a mundane task.
