Engagement Survey Frequency
Q1: How often should one hold an employee engagement survey? How to engage the audience in these times of multiple messages?
A full survey should be repeated typically every 12 or 24 months because you need to allow enough time between surveys to gather the data, analyze it, report it to leaders, develop solutions, fund solutions, implement solutions, and give them a chance to take hold before re-surveying the audience to see if anything has changed. However, if there are active change projects underway on items related to the full survey, you should be repeating a series of pulse surveys at key points during the change process to track successes and/or see what still needs more focus.
