A survey template for your staff happiness [Bluewire News]
Updated on January 30th, 2015
The template for you today is the Staff Happiness Survey Template for employee engagement. Whether you run a company, a small marketing team or have a single VA (virtual assistant), your team’s happiness is crucial to your success.
Download it as a Google Sheet (Login to Google > File > Make a Copy > Save > Form > Go To Live Form). There are “How to” instructions on the second tab too.
You can also download it as an Excel Spreadsheet (24 KB – XLS) but be warned, it won’t work as well because Excel can’t create an online form for people to fill in. The clunky way to make it work is to distribute the spreadsheet, get each person to fill it in and return it and then you collate the answers. If you are an Excel whiz or sucker for punishment, this is still an option if you don’t use Google.
You can also take the questions and use them in your own survey software!
The survey is a combination of the Gallup Q12 employee engagement questions, which are, “On a scale of 1-5…”
- Do I know what is expected of me at work?
- At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day (and what I love)?
- Do I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work right?
- In the last seven days, have I received recognition or praise for good work?
- Does my supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about me as a person?
- Is there someone at work who encourages my development?
- At work, do my opinions seem to count?
- Does the mission/purpose of my company make me feel like my work is important?
- Are my co-workers committed to doing quality work?
- Do I have a good friend at work?
- In the last six months, have I talked with someone about my progress?
- At work, have I had opportunities to learn and grow?
Plus we ask the Employee Net Promoter Score question which is, “On a scale of 1-10, how likely are you to recommend working at _________ to a friend?”
The employee’s name is optional so they can maintain anonymity.
Finally we added a final question of our own, simply “All your feedback please?” The secret here is to ask for ‘all’ the feedback so you give permission to give feedback that they may otherwise be hesistant to give.
We’ve conducted this Staff Happiness Survey every quarter with our team for many years. It is just as effective for people you work with in person, as it is for remote workers. Read more about how to collate the results in Toby’s blog post.
