Subject: Employee Engagement Survey - Thank you!

As you know, we've recently closed our Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey. I'd like to share with you that it was a huge success! Here are some particulars you might be interested to know:

  • Our final response rate was 74%, while average response rates for organizations like ours tend to be around 70%;
  • The anonymous feedback that you've shared will enable us to understand current levels of employee and satisfaction within the organization;
  • Our next steps are to work with Best Employee Surveys to analyze the data and determine which areas of the organization need our attention; and
  • We plan to share the results of the survey with everyone at our All-Staff Meeting on DATE.

Thank you for all that you've done to make this effort a success! Stay tuned for next steps.
