5 Reasons Why DIY Employee Surveys Are Bad Practice

  I recently came across an article on with an intriguing headline.

Jeff Bezos says 94% of Amazon workers would recommend their job to a friend.

Bullshit, I thought. In over 20 years of surveying employees on their job satisfaction we have never, ever encountered a score anywhere close to that high for that particular question. How on earth could Amazon then? Turns out it's not so rosy as it might appear. The number comes from an internal survey of employees, and Amazon, like many companies these days have decided to conduct the survey themselves in-house. The article goes on to explain it:

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos recently said warehouse employees like working for his company so much that “94% say they would recommend Amazon to a friend as a place to work.” But some of his own employees aren’t buying that statistic.

The 94 percent number was gleaned from an employee survey program at Amazon called Connections, which asks Amazon employees to answer a single question each day before they can start working on their company computer or their warehouse workstation. Bezos cited the stat in mid-April in his final letter to shareholders as Amazon’s CEO.

But in interviews with Recode over the past two weeks, a half-dozen Amazon employees and managers, two of whom are familiar with the inner workings of the Connections program, said that many Amazon employees have widespread concerns about the Connections program and the accuracy of its data and insights.

There's a simple explanantion why Amazon employees have concerns. If this survey is being conducted by in-house HR, then it's not anonymous. And if workers believe they are being tracked and their responses are monitored by HR they simply will not be honest. As I wrote in a LinkedIn post a few years ago, anonymity is critical for the success of any  kind of employee feedback system. That's still true today, even with the proliferation of DIY survey tools out there, using a trusted 3rd party to conduct your employee survey is the only way to guarantee that you are getting accurate data.

Why Every Job Seeker Should Have a Personal Website

Finding a job isn't easy. Although there are plenty of job openings everywhere in the world, finding a job doesn't seem to go as smoothly as it may sound. Moreover, people want a good job that provides stability and security aside from a good salary.

Not only that, but a suitable work environment and work conditions are also very desirable. After all, if you're supposed to work for the majority of your life, why not do something that you'll actually enjoy? However, the more preferences people have, the more difficult it becomes to find an ideal job.
