Using this employee benefits survey questionnaire will indeed help both business owners and HR managers determine the general feel of the company when it comes to benefit plans. There are some tips to keep in mind including:
Confidentiality – The survey offers no space for the employee’s name or signature and a blank envelope is provided for employees to drop off at the HR Department.
Complainers – No matter how hard you try, there will be some employees who don’t like anything about the company and will not read the instructions and check every answer or areas they don’t especially like. Don’t utilize these surveys in the re-analysis of the benefit plan—these people are most likely short-termers anyway.
Get Help – Most benefit plan companies want your business and will even sort through questionnaires for you to help you develop the best of the best plans, along with plan affordability. Ask more than one company to shop your benefit plan using the surveys.
Never Drop the Ball – You want to keep you employees happy so never drop the ball once surveys are completed and gathered. If you do, the next time you feel an employee survey is a good idea, you’ll only hear moans and groans. Act on the responses.
Be Realistic – Only offer what your company can afford. Many a business owner wants to offer the world, but when they over spend, they find themselves in a cash crunch.
