Solution: Pulse Surveys Support a Healthy and Engaged Workforce
Currently, most companies either find themselves in Stage 1: Disorder or Stage 2: Adjusting. If you want to understand how you can adapt your HR priorities to your current business stage and the needs of your people, you can give them a voice by regularly sending out a Pulse Survey.
We’ve been listening to our customers and their current challenges, and along with our own experience, we have created two COVID-19 Response Pulse Survey templates specifically designed for the business stage you are in. These pulse surveys will provide you with a real-time snapshot of the well-being of your workforce and important themes that need your immediate attention.
If you’re new to Pulse Surveys and are curious about what value they can bring you, please read more here.
Pulse Survey during Stage 1: Disorder
How can you expect people to focus on their job when they are worried about losing it? During the Disorder Stage, your focus should be on providing clarity, building trust and addressing employees’ concerns.
Recognizing signs of distress from a remote situation has proven to be difficult when you are missing out on human interaction and face-to-face conversation.
To measure employee sentiment during Stage 1 or Stage 2, please find two different crisis response pulse survey templates here.
Pulse Survey during Stage 2: Adjusting
The Adjusting Stage is crucial as it brings with it the uncertainty of how long it will last. This not-knowing can impact productivity, engagement, and overall employee experience. Though the panic has resided, working on long-term plans has made way for adjusting to remote life.
This outlook may cause distress and frustration. If left unattended, these feelings will impact employees’ motivation and ultimately lead to a disengaged workforce.
To measure employee sentiment during either of these two stages, please find two different crisis response pulse survey templates here.
How Impraise supports Pulse Surveys
We’ve specifically designed our Pulse Survey feature in Impraise to add instant value to HR, management, and C-suite. Team reports are automatically shared with managers and you are given the flexibility to share the full report with C-suite.
This empowers the team leads to understand their team’s morale and take the appropriate action, while HR and C-suite have actionable insights to make higher strategic decisions. Conducting Pulse Surveys regularly allows you to compare responses over time and identify whether you have made progress after the action you’ve taken.
