4 Reasons Why Conducting an Employee Engagement Survey on Your Own Will Not Get Results [Video]


You already know that you need to do an employee engagement survey in your organization. You know good leaders can gain great insight from the employees on the front line, and that engaged employees lead to better business results.

At this point, you might start thinking that you can just create and administer an engagement survey on your own, cutting out the survey provider altogether and saving money. It might seem like an appealing prospect at first. But once you get rolling, you’ll run into unforeseen obstacles.

In fact, doing your own employee engagement survey can actually have negative consequences. You can unintentionally decrease employee engagement if you go this route.

4 Reasons Why Conducting an Employee Engagement Survey on Your Own Will Not Get Results [Video] In my video below, I talk about the four major reasons you should not attempt to conduct your own employee engagement survey:

  1. You will lose your employees’ trust.
  2. You will measure the wrong variables.
  3. You will ask irrelevant questions (yes, even if you research sample questions).
  4. You will fail to fully leverage your survey results.

You will waste time, effort, and money doing your own employee engagement survey.
