How do I develop a pulse survey strategy?

Creating a pulse survey strategy that fits your organization’s needs involves a few steps before you launch. Here are the five steps we recommend taking:

  1. Define Your Purpose: Have a clear picture of what you want to accomplish, so that you choose the right topics, questions, audience, and timeline.
  2. Set objectives: Pulse surveys are quick and easy – but if you launch one without a clear purpose, you’ll get results that don’t move your organization forward.
  3. Choose the right audience: Depending on the topic, you may want to survey your entire company, or specific segments of your workforce.
  4. Establish a frequency: The golden rule of conducting a pulse survey is to only gather feedback as often as you are able to act on it.
  5. Create a follow-up plan: Creating a plan and taking action after a pulse survey will help your employees and organization succeed – isn't that what collecting feedback is all about?
