Read this before you create your Pulse Survey
How do you plan to evaluate and implement changes brought about by the survey’s results?
Preparing and planning your questionnaire
At this early stage, you will also want to consider:
- Who you will survey?
- How frequently the pulse survey should run?
- How long will employees have to respond?
- Consider what frequency of surveys is appropriate to avoid survey fatigue among your people.
A note on data quality:
The quality of your data will have an impact on your ability to analyze results effectively. Inconsistencies in, for example, employees’ department names (eg “Dev” or “Development”) can make your analysis of results tricky.
Data inconsistency can increase the chances of our confidentiality settings impairing your analysis of respondents from particular departments or locations – we won’t show you the results of groups of less than 3 people.
So, before you design and launch a survey, have a quick look at your employee data. If you're using BambooHR or another one of our supported HRIS systems, this data is updated automatically. If you're using excel, check out our below guide.
