We're here to help you get the most out of your employee survey. So, when our client, the CEO of a California-based healthcare system, sent us his unique method for encouraging his employees to complete their surveys, we just had to share it with you.
You've already communicated the logistics around your plan to survey employees (i.e. timeline and process) and the context of why it’s important (i.e. goals and culture stories). Your job doesn't stop there. When it comes to employee surveys, lead by example. The below sample from our CEO is so simple and impactful because it's showing that leadership at the company is actively participating in the employee survey. We recommend that you have your top dog do the same by emailing all staff - or even mentioning it at meetings or in passing - after s/he's completed the survey. Check out the below sample reminder. Make it yours when you put your own spin on it!
SAMPLE: Reminder Email from the CEO
From: Fearless Leader
To: Staff All <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Good morning, Team,
I’ve completed my survey-- have you?
