Here’s a must read for all companies who have surveyed their employees in the past, gather the results, but don’t follow through with action planning, or a grand attempt is made in the beginning, but fizzles out as time wears on.
An excerpt from the article describes the “Survey Slump”:
“In many survey processes, a phenomena called the “survey slump” seems to set in somewhere between the delivery of survey results and the launch of the next survey. Organizations that conduct employee surveys on a regular basis know this time well. Excitement builds around the delivery of the results as managers look to see if their scores have improved (or declined). Everyone wants to know if the actions taken had any effect.”
Here is the article, “Avoiding the Survey Slump” in its entirety. Let me know what you think about it.
