What are Employee Pulse Surveys?

Employee pulse surveys are short, focused surveys that gather feedback from employees on a regular basis. Unlike traditional employee satisfaction surveys, which can take hours to complete, employee pulse surveys are designed to be quick and easy, taking no more than 5-10 minutes. By regularly gathering feedback from employees, HR leaders, board level influencers, and HR managers can stay informed on what is working well and what needs improvement in the workplace.

To get the most out of your employee pulse surveys, it's important to ask the right questions.

Types of Employee Pulse Survey Questions

Here are the 9 best types of questions you can to ask in an Employee Pulse Survey:

  • Satisfaction:overall satisfaction with various aspects of their job, such as their manager, workload, and company culture.
  • Autonomy: sense of control and independence in their work.
  • Personal Development: opportunities for growth and learning.
  • Leadership: perceptions of their leaders and the leadership culture.
  • Meaningfulness: perceptions of the purpose and significance of their work.
  • Participation: sense of involvement and influence in their work.
  • Work Situation: experiences of physical and organisational work environment.
  • Job Satisfaction: overall satisfaction with their job.
  • Commitment: motivation to do their best work and commitment to the company.
  • Team Spirit: sense of camaraderie and teamwork within the company.

Asking a combination of these types of questions can help provide a comprehensive picture of employee satisfaction, motivation, and perceptions, allowing your business and people leaders to make informed decisions that drive business success.
