We will not in any way reprint, resell, or redistribute your organization’s survey results to anyone, with the exception of Best Places to Work surveys, in which case anonymized aggregate organizational results are shared with the event’s sponsoring publication.
Access to your organization’s results is available to selected leaders within your organization who use the information for organizational development purposes. Organizational data may be sliced by employee demographics, but will never identify individual employees according to industry standards.
For population and pulse surveys, employers will NOT have access to:
- Employee names or email addresses – a survey cannot be tracked to a specific person
- The ability to see who has or has not completed the survey
- A specific employee’s answers
For self-evaluation surveys, such as an exit interview or new hire surveys, employers WILL have access to:
- The ability to see if the self evaluator (exiter or new hire) has completed the survey
- A specific self evaluator’s (exiting or new employee’s) answers
Quantum Workplace reserves the right to aggregate your data into comparative benchmarks that are presented to our clients or third parties in an anonymized, de-identifying format. Under all circumstances, your organization’s data will be combined with multiple organizations, and your organization’s identity will never be revealed.
Best Places to Work
In addition to the policies listed above in Employee Surveys, Quantum Workplace also maintains the following policies when operating Best Places to Work surveys.
Quantum Workplace reserves the right to share Best Places to Work organizations’ information, in an anonymized aggregate format, with the sponsoring publication to establish honorees and awards. If your organization is not an honoree, your results will not be shared.
All participating Best Places to Work organizations will receive a one-page overview report after participating in the contest. This report will show the overall score and a few specific highlights from the survey. Employers also have the option to purchase a more advanced report that will contain all survey results and comments. However, answers are always shown at the aggregate, de-identified level (grouped together).
We will not in any way reprint, resell, or redistribute an individual’s survey response or an organization’s results to anyone. Data we collect for research is always published and distributed in aggregate and is anonymized.
Quantum Workplace reserves the right to aggregate your data into comparative benchmarks that are presented to our clients or third parties.
