A corporate internet is ideal delivery mechanism. By linking through to an online survey website such as http://www.surveygalaxy.com a company can regularly conduct surveys so they become part and parcel of daily operations.
With an online survey’s ability to produce results in real-time mood of employees can rapidly be gauged and concerns highlighted both on a collective and individual level.
Using survey results companies can quickly identify problem areas and follow-up surveys can be used to target specific concerns. With good information managers are able to get to root of specific problems and prepare a considered response.
A major advantage of regular surveys is that it allows a company to address small problems in a timely manner avoiding 'the straw that broke camels back' syndrome where a relatively insignificant incident unleashes a torrent of pent up concerns.
And don’t forget that majority of employees appreciate being consulted so asking their opinion is not a sign of weakness but an indicator of good decision making.
It’s unusual to find, but there it is – sometimes management problems can be solved with something that is quick, easy and won't break bank.
