Employee surveys are a commonly used – and commonly misused – tool for learning about our clients’ challenges. Poorly done, however, a survey can exhaust organizational will, dampen employee engagement and overwhelm a sincere change effort. Done well, an employee survey can illuminate complex problems and engage staff in future change efforts.

While the pitfalls are numerous, the keys to a successful survey project are only a few. And most of them are NOT commonly known in business circles.

Join us for an evening that delves into effective survey design.
