Building companies that attract and retain top talent has never been more important. The best way forward is to put the voice of your employees at the heart of your company. The resources within this toolkit will help you leverage feedback to create experiences that turn your employees into advocates.

Uncover how to improve employee engagement in your organization

You want to attract, engage, and retain top employees, but with the Great Resignation and a competitive talent market, understanding employee satisfaction is hard.

  • How can we measure employee satisfaction?
  • What benefits and programs might we need to retain employees?
  • How can we be proactive in employee retention?

SurveyMonkey is here to help you gather the feedback you need to get answers.

Understand your employee’s diverse experiences

Making commitments in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is more important than ever, but many companies aren’t confident that they'll meet their DEI goals.

  • What metrics should we be measuring relative to our DEI goals?
  • What perceptions of fairness exist for compensation and promotions?
  • How can we get buy-in from leadership for investment in new programs?

Here are some common mistakes and best practices on how to avoid them.

When gathering feedback from employees, human resource departments often experience some hiccups:

You rely on feedback to perform your job, but your response rate and quality will suffer if you ask too often.

Asking a question without considering what you’re looking for will result in answers that aren’t actionable.

Asking your employees to participate in surveys and not acting on their feedback can send a bad message. Be sure you’re sharing what you learned and taking strides to improve.

The best companies are constantly using the voice of their employees to adjust and improve. Here are some tips:

Bring visibility to the challenges the staff are facing by sharing the feedback, especially with leadership.

Collect feedback starting from recruitment, through exit interviews. Understanding the entire employee journey will give you the best insights for your company.

See if there is interest for new perks, employee resource groups, guest speakers, mentorship programs, and other things that employees find valuable.
