Managing Employee Surveys in Uganda
A wisely designed and conducted employee survey can reveal a great deal of information about employee perceptions that management can use to improve the workplace.
Company responsiveness to employee feedback leads to higher retention rates, lower absenteeism, improved productivity, better customer service, and higher employee morale.
Employee Satisfaction and Culture Diagnostic Survey
We Seek Employee Opinions Which Are An Essential Component Of Organizational Training And Development. Our Employee Satisfaction and Culture Diagnostic Survey Provide A Picture Of Your Organization’s Needs. Use Employee Surveys To Stay Informed About Changing Employee Attitudes.
These surveys can be used to solicit employee opinions on a variety of issues such as the company’s success in communicating its mission to employees, or local issues such as quality of the working environment.
These surveys often contain a series of multiple-choice items grouped along one or more dimensions of the organization.
We focus our survey on the core items including Recruitment, Induction, Training, Reward, Staff Welfare, Internal Communication, Exit, Leadership & Enablement, Health, Safety, Security, Environment (HSSE) & Job Risk plus Employee Engagement.
HR Audit Survey
We are experts in the process of examining Human Resources policies, documents, procedures, guidelines, practices systems as well as various measures such as employee satisfaction, performance, benchmarks, grievances, turnover, time from recruitment to hiring, and budgets within the organization.
We do this to reveal strengths and weaknesses in areas of the organization/department under the influence of the Human Resources department. An HR Audit is used as a diagnostic tool and a way of examining the effectiveness of your department.
We also conduct salary surveys in Uganda which are used as a tool specifically for remuneration specialists and managers to define a fair and competitive salary for the employees of a company.
Training Needs Assessment Survey
This is the process to identify skills gaps between current performance and department/organizational objectives.
This is an assessment that looks at an employee and organizational knowledge, skills, and abilities, to identify any gaps and areas of need.
Once the training needs are identified, then you need to determine/develop objectives to be accomplished by the training. These objectives will form criteria for measures of success and utility.
Before administering a new employee survey, we work with HR to review the previous surveys and their results (if any) and ask questions like: “Why would you like to do this particular survey?
We want to make sure it is not just because it is time for another survey because the organization is trying to win an award.
To be sure about the key objectives for survey designing, our team considers design and strategy questions, such as:
- Why are we conducting a survey (i.e., what do we want to know, what do we hope to obtain)?
- What are we measuring, and why?
- Who will create the questions?
- Who will be asked to participate in the survey?
- When will we conduct the survey?
- Will all results be communicated, and how?
- Who will be held accountable for implementing changes driven by survey results?
- Are there questions from previous surveys that should be included again?
- Are there questions from previous surveys that need to be rewritten because they were vague or confusing?
In addition to conducting surveys at regular intervals, we want our clients to make sure the design of the survey will yield information that isolates problems and helps management address them.
We have experts who are ready for laying the groundwork for an employee survey, designing the survey, interpreting and communicating the results. We are ready for all types of employee surveys like employee opinion and satisfaction surveys, employee culture surveys, and employee engagement surveys.
Employee opinion and satisfaction surveys measure employee views, attitudes, and perceptions of their organization (also known as “climate surveys”).
An employee culture survey measures the point of view of employees and is designed to assess whether it aligns with that of the organization or its departments.
Employee engagement surveys measure employees’ commitment, motivation, sense of purpose, and passion for their work and organization.
