Annual employee surveys are designed to gauge overall employee satisfaction, engagement, and more. In addition to these comprehensive surveys, companies can use pulse surveys to regularly check in on the work environment.
Pulse surveys are short, easy to fill out, and sent more frequently than a comprehensive survey. While uniformity is important, these surveys can be customized each time they are sent, giving companies the ability to insert a question about a current issue or event that might impact employees. For example, questions might focus on an employee’s role, their teammates, career opportunities, or management changes. In addition to their flexibility, pulse surveys add the important element of time; allowing companies to track employee responses on a topic throughout the year.
Because it is an internal survey, customization is important—a pulse survey should reflect the company logo, color, and branding to give employees confidence. Also, a pulse survey should be sent in multiple ways so employees can choose the most convenient way to respond; via text, a weblink, an email, or QR code.
