An employee pulse check is a periodic survey of employees that asks them how they feel about their work and their working conditions.
In order to implement an employee pulse check program, follow these quick recommendations:
- Choose a time to conduct your employee pulse check: Most pulse checks are conducted weekly, or every few weeks, but you may want to conduct a monthly pulse check or a quarterly one.
- Decide how you will distribute the pulse check: In our case, we find the easiest way to do this is taking the survey to people. As employees already spend a lot using chat tools, we believe sending an in-chat form might do the trick.
- Decide how you will record answers to your employees pulse check: Many pulse checks are done in person, but you can also use email, or an app. DailyBot comes with a built-in report specifically designed for this.
- Format your pulse check: Most pulse check questions consist of 15-20+ questions or statements. We suggest the 10 questions below if you'll run this regularly in chat to keep things simple, yet meaningful.
- Conduct your pulse check.
- Analyze your pulse check data.
- Make suggestions based on the employee pulse check data and implement them.
