Our customers often want to know what are the best practices in a wildly successful employee survey project. Sending out a communication from your top local executive, or the CEO, is one great way to increase response rates, prepare your employees, and show leadership's support of the project. Use this sample as a jumping off point when crafting your own message from the CEO. Plan on sending this the day before your survey goes live.
SAMPLE EMAIL FROM THE CEO
From: Fearless Leader
To: Staff All <email@example.com>
Subject: Memo from Fearless Leader - Best Employee Surveys
Good morning. Tomorrow you will receive an email from Best Employee Surveys, inviting you to
participate in our annual employee engagement and satisfaction survey. We value your insights and perspectives. Please make time to complete the survey by Aug. 21.
I am proud of our company and I am always interested in ways we can become even better. Our associates are our largest and most important investment. This survey is one of the ways we collect information and input on how well we are doing in our workplace.
Your ratings and comments are completely confidential because your openness and honesty are so important to us. Even members of small teams cannot have their scores identified; any group of associates with fewer than five members is not reported separately.
Thank you in advance for your input. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Fearless Leader, CEO
1500 Birch Street
