KEY TAKEAWAYS: EMPLOYEE SATISFACTION SURVEYS …and their role in enhancing organizational performance

  1. Revamping Employee Surveys: Employee satisfaction correlates with improved organizational outcomes, but many employee surveys face challenges like misaligned questions and lack of actionable follow-up. To maximize survey potential, organizations need to ensure management acts on the feedback provided by these surveys, refine survey parameters to measure true employee satisfaction, and expand the survey’s scope to obtain a holistic organizational view.
  2. High Performance Organization (HPO) Diagnosis: Based on extensive research, the HPO Diagnosis highlights the characteristics of high-performing organizations, offering a comprehensive framework covering five core factors, with which an organization can evaluate its performance and improvement opportunities.
  3. Synergistic Role of HPO Diagnosis and Employee Surveys: The HPO Diagnosis offers a broad organizational perspective, while a tailored employee survey provides detailed feedback on human-centric areas. Together, they ensure targeted and effective interventions.
