We have recently completed two staff surveys in two years, before which there was a gap of about 3 years since the previous one. Both recent surveys were comprehensive and useful, and we’re now considering how to run them in future. The debate is around how often we should conduct surveys. Some organisations do, I know, do them annually; however, if we retain the comprehensive nature of them there’s always a chance that we won’t have had time to fully implement any resulting changes before the next survey is due. There’s also the potential problem of ‘survey overload’ among our people. Does anyone have any views/advice on what might be good practice in this area?
