Employee surveys can provide an extremely powerful tool for enacting positive change throughout your business. But it’s important to ensure they are effectively planned, designed and reported on, if you are to the achieve the increased workforce contentment, motivation and productivity levels you need.
Helping your company grow
Investing resources to create a positive work environment can pay dividends for company growth. Employee satisfaction and engagement should rate highly on every companies list of objectives as employees on the front line may interact with hundreds of customers every day. Staff are often the first to know when something goes right or wrong, so gathering feedback in a structured way with SmartSurvey’s online software can help you to analyse responses and stay on top of any issues.
Why measure employee satisfaction?
Most businesses track customer satisfaction, but don’t regularly measure employee satisfaction. However, by executing a long-term strategy of retaining motivated employees that provide great service, you will increase customer satisfaction and profitability.
Unhappy employees who leave your company and voice their grievances are detrimental to your brand. Employee focused strategy has become the norm, not the exception in thriving companies and consumers look favourably on organisations investing in people, rather than profits.
By engaging directly with your employees, you can identify what is working well and what needs improving. For example, by frequently using pulse surveys as well as conducting more in-depth satisfaction surveys, you can stay on top of what makes your business effective, allowing you to address issues before they impact customer satisfaction.

3 Benefits of Digitising Your Employee Engagement
From an HR point of view going digital offers a significant number of advantages for employee engagement over staying with paper‑based systems.
Centralises record keeping
From staff performance appraisals and training & development to feedback about employee satisfaction levels, digitising and centralising this data makes it easier to find, access and share with others, which ultimately benefits your employees and business.
A clearer audit trail
From hiring, employee benefits and staff compensation, to performance appraisals and job termination, there are many policies and practices that HR teams are involved with and associated laws they need to adhere to. By digitising these processes, they are much easier to review for auditing, helping to ensure you remain compliant.
Minimise risk in HR legal cases
With all your staff records efficiently and clearly documented, digitisation helps you quickly locate and present evidence you need should demonstrate processes were correctly followed.
