Still Not a Believer in Employee Engagement Surveys?


If you are one of those companies that isn’t surveying employees, perhaps this will give you reason to rethink your perspective: according to a survey by Monster Canada, 40% of employees are still looking for that dream job!  Workers are seeking career meaning and fulfillment over monetary incentives.

Do you know if your company is providing employees with meaning? How emotionally invested and fulfilled are your employees?

Do an Employee Engagement Survey

A well-executed engagement survey will give you insights by each work group in your company on the likelihood that your employees are part of this 40%.

Also, if well-designed, the survey will identify what the levels of dissatisfaction are across a number of variables. This will enable you to take corrective action and deal with the 59% of employees who state that their job has a major impact on their lives and how they feel. You don’t want to lose good employees simply because you don’t realize you have an organizational problem with engagement!

Employee-engagementWhat about Pay?

I meet many leaders who think that money will keep people where they are. Not true!

Granted, pay does have to be fair – both as viewed internally (across similar jobs in the company) and externally (can I do this job elsewhere and get way more money). However, even a difference in pay is not enough to pull a fully engaged employee away from an employer.

A good employee engagement survey gives you the data you need to identify whether your employees are engaged or disengaged, where your problem areas are, and what you should prioritize in order to make the greatest impact to your business.
