Find out how to keep your employees happy and productive


Create better employee surveys by collaborating with your team. Plus save over individual plans.

Your team is made up of hand-picked, talented individuals. Your organization’s success hinges on the performance of these employees, and happy workers are productive workers.

So how do you know if your workforce is finding your organization to be fulfilling and motivating? Where does a small business or HR department go to get data on how you can improve the workspace, or why your employee turnover rate is higher than you’d like? Employee feedback, as it’s gathered through employee satisfaction surveys, is the single best way to understand what your workforce needs to perform at its best.

You can be as general or as specific as you’d like. Use one of our employee survey samples as-is, or customize it for you.

Even you. Evaluations go both ways. Give your staff the opportunity to evaluate anyone in the organization: management, team members, even C-level executives. When you open the door to honest conversation, you’ll help your employees feel valued and heard. Ask questions like, “How effective is the training you receive from your supervisor?” or, “How trustworthy is your coworker?” It takes a bit of a thick skin to ask for criticism for yourself, but when you receive and act on it, you’ll be in a better position to establish a great relationship with your colleagues.

Asking employees why they’re leaving will give you a whole different level of insight into your company’s hiring, management, and benefits policies. Merely asking why they’re leaving isn’t necessarily enough; ask them questions such as, “How much room for professional growth did you have at this company?” or even, “How easy was it to balance your work life and personal life while working at this company?” to get opinions on a wide variety of subjects. The answers you get may surprise you, and you’ll have valuable information you can use to help keep up your employee retention rate.

Building a workplace culture that prioritizes belonging and inclusion is the best way to attract diverse and talented people, create a sustainable workforce, and—most importantly—make employees feel supported. SurveyMonkey’s inclusion and belonging survey template can help you understand what you’re doing well and where there’s room for growth.

Are you offering benefits your workers want, or are you spending cash on things they don’t necessarily find valuable? For instance, would they rather have more time off or a holiday bonus? Send an employee benefit survey with questions such as, “How fair is your employer’s sick day policy?” and, “Is your employer’s health insurance plan better, worse, or about the same as those of other employers?” to fine-tune your benefits for better team satisfaction and employee retention.

Sometimes you just need to check in with your salespeople or staff to see what the overall mood is like. Small adjustments and big changes alike can mean the difference between happy, productive personnel and an unmotivated workforce. A mixture of questions such as, “In a typical week, how often do you feel stressed at work?” or, “Do you like your employer, neither like nor dislike them, or dislike them?” can go a long way toward determining the general morale of your workplace.

Don’t send a staff feedback survey on Friday and expect it back first thing Monday morning. Give them plenty of time to complete it, and send out reminders along the way. Also, don’t expect surveys to completed on your employees’ personal time; let your employees carve out a few minutes of company time.

Offer small gifts or prizes for completing the employee survey, or create contests among departments for the highest response rate.

Be sure your employees know their employee survey answers are 100% anonymous. In order to gain the most insight, you’ll want to communicate their feedback is completely safe

If your employees feel their feedback is going into a black hole, they’ll be less likely to participate again. Offer an employee survey presentation to show what knowledge has been gained, and what’s being done with the survey results.

Make the most of your time by leveraging SurveyMonkey’s methodologist-certified sample questions. You’ll be able to create your online survey in a matter of minutes on a wide variety of topics. SurveyMonkey also gives you access to the survey tools you need to easily deploy and analyze your surveys—empowering you to make smarter decisions. And we take survey security seriously, so rest assured knowing your data and insights are safe with us.
