Step Nine – Follow-up Actions

Ultimately the success or failure of your employee surveys rests on the effectiveness of follow-up actions. It’s how your staff knows that they’re being heard and what makes them feel more valued. Therefore they will be more engaged and their work performance will increase, as will worker retention.

Having clearly defined staff survey objectives will focus which areas will be targeted. It’s important to be realistic. You should focus on a small number of issues at one time and on those which will deliver maximum business impact.

You need to communicate what is happening with your employees and how their input has resulted in these changes. Making them fully aware of the impact of their contribution will increase the positive effects of the engagement survey.

As a result of your swift follow-up actions and fulfilling your aims, your staff will also be more likely to take part in a staff questionnaire in the future. This means that future surveys will be more effective and over time employee engagement is more likely to rise.
