Employee Inclusion Survey

Surveys at work can be a great way to collect feedback from employees and understand the employee experience of a team. By understanding what employees are thinking and feeling, employers can discover opportunities to improve while also identifying problems before they become larger issues.

Additionally, surveys can help to build trust and improve communication between employees and management.

Creating an inclusive environment at work is necessary to attract and retain top talent. Inclusive workplaces have been shown to improve performance, increase creativity, and produce higher levels of employee engagement.

Employee inclusion surveys can help employers to gauge how well they’re doing in creating an inclusive environment. These surveys also provide some insight into areas where improvement is needed.

When creating an employee inclusion survey, it’s important to consider what questions will be most helpful in understanding employee inclusion at your organization. To make this process easier, we’ve assembled a list of employee inclusion survey questions based on industry best practices.

This template is intended to help teams create an effective and informative inclusion survey. It is important to remember that state and federal laws may place additional requirements on this process. This policy should be reviewed by legal counsel prior to implementation.
