An Employee Satisfaction Survey Bridges Distance
When you operate a small business, it is fairly easy to find out if your employees are satisfied. With only a handful of employees, everyone is practically like family. Everyone feels close enough and comfortable enough to be honest about their feelings.
When you operate a large business, with hundreds of employees, it is much easier to lose that feeling of family and lose touch with your employees. That is where an employee satisfaction survey can help bridge the distance. Surveys offer employees easy, anonymous ways of letting upper-management know how they feel about their job situations. If workers are unhappy, a survey gives them a way to tell you they are unhappy.
If they are completely satisfied, a survey gives them a way to let you know why they are happy. Here at Insightlink Communications, we are the survey specialists you need to uncover how your employees feel about your current operations. Our surveys utilize a series of questions that will reveal the truth about the feelings of your employees. If they are unhappy, the surveys will let you know why – then, you can start making any necessary changes to bring your employee morale back up again.
If your employees are happy, the survey will tell you why, so you will know which aspects require no changes at all. After all, if something is not broken, why fix it?Read full post

A Better Motivator Than Money
What Is the Secret to Employee Motivation?
A recent study by the McKinsey Group highlights what we've been saying for years. When it comes to motivating employees, financial incentives are not the most effective tool. In survey after survey, we've found that regular recognition and appreciation matters most to employees.
Why is it then that so many organizations fail at this relatively easy (and pretty much free) strategy for motivating and engaging their workforce? It all comes down to ineffective managers who misplace their focus on what means most to employees.Read full post

Why You Should Offer an Employee Morale Survey
Have you ever offered an employee morale survey at your business? If not, you may not realize the value of these kinds of surveys. The morale of your workers will reflect in their productivity – if they are not happy, they are not going to be as productive. That is where a survey can help you. Through a survey, you can find out exactly how your workers are feeling about your business. If they are unhappy, you can find out why, making it easier for you to make necessary changes.
If they are perfectly happy with their jobs, you can find out why, to ensure that you keep them happy. Knowing how your workers feel about your business operations, as well as their personal jobs, is the best way to stay on track for success. You want your workers to feel proud of their jobs. You want them to take pride in the tasks they perform. When your employees are proud, they work harder. They want to see your business succeed because they care about it.
If your workers could not care less about their jobs or your business, they are only going to do the bare minimum required – and that is not going to help your business succeed. If you are ready to find out how your workers feel about their jobs, as well as their boss (YOU), it is time to give them a morale survey. You need to uncover the truth in order to make any needed changes – and Insightlink Communications is here to help you uncover that truth.Read full post

How to Avoid Disengaged Employees
Have Your Employees Lost Their Drive?
If you have recently noticed that your employees seem to be less interested in their jobs, it may be time to take a survey of your employees. The wants and needs of employees can change over time. If too many become disengaged, those feelings can lead to lower productivity. In addition, these employees often don't hide their feelings, so that can negatively impact the morale of those around them. When your employees are no longer happy with their jobs and their duties, they often either leave or, even worse, become "quit and stay" employees. This can be extremely detrimental to the success of your organization.Read full post

Employee Surveys Provide Valuable Information to Help You Succeed
Opening a new business involves many tedious tasks. You have to acquire the financing to fund your new endeavor. You have to acquire a physical location for your business.

Once you have all your ducks in a row, you can launch your business. Hopefully, it will be a success.
If your business is not a success, before you give up, consider the benefits of employee surveys. Surveys provide your employees with an anonymous way to tell you exactly how they feel about their job.
