Guide: Run an employee survey

Test your survey

There are lots of reasons to test your survey, including:

  • Eliminate confusing or poorly worded questions/response options
  • Give an idea of how long it takes to fill out the survey, which should be conveyed to respondents in the survey invitation

You may want to start by trying out some questions or instructions very informally. Review the questions with stakeholders to ensure their support, gather ideas, and address questions. Once you have a full survey, bring some testers physically together to test the survey, as there can be lot to learn from being in a room with a group of people while they attempt to complete the survey.
