If you’ve ever wondered what your employees might feel and say about your company…you’re not alone. But the good news is that there is an easy way for you to get important insights into employee satisfaction and engagement through eNPS surveys.
You might be wondering where to start with this; we’ve got your back. Let’s talk about what an eNPS survey is, why it should be important to you, and give you baseline questions and tools you should use to start measuring your employee sentiment.
An eNPS survey is a quantitative way to measure how your employees feel about your organization. It stands for Employee Net Promoter Score. Much like a standard net promoter score, eNPS scores are calculated by responses to various questions on a ‘1-10’ scale.
These responses are categorized into promoters, passives, and detractors. Then, after some not-so-fancy and really simple math, your eNPS score appears. It’s almost like really helpful magic.
(If you are using some sort of software for your surveys, like Motivosity, you can automate eNPS surveys and the platform will do the collection and calculations for you!)
For more information on how eNPS calculations work and what they mean, check out this article.
In 2021, Gallup released research about the number of employees currently engaged in their work across the United States. The results might scare you just a little bit.
It explains that employee engagement dropped by 2%. When you think of how many people are working in the United States, say 162, 290,000 million people. That 2% is 3,245,800 people that are newly no longer engaged at work — on top of those employees who haven’t been engaged for a long time.
Have you figured out why eNPS surveys should be important to you yet?
If not, here’s the answer: if you don’t know how your employees feel and aren’t making efforts to engage them on a deeper level, they will become disengaged and they will leave.
You should be regularly evaluating the sentiment of your employees. In fact, you should try to collect a survey every 90 days from their start date. (This is something that platforms like Motivosity are great at. Automate your surveys, and the platform will collect rolling data so you’ll always have an accurate pulse on team sentiment.)
Here is a list of questions that you should be asking your employees to understand how they feel about your organization and the work they do.
