Half of organisations do not carry out annual employee engagement surveys

Only 59% of UK organisations carry out annual or half-annual employee engagement surveys, according to a poll conducted by employee communication consultancy Caburn Hope.

Three-quarters (78%) of respondents confirmed they have conducted some form of employee feedback or employee engagement survey, but only 19% of these were on an ad-hoc basis.

Chris Hopkins, managing director of Caburn Hope, said: “Measuring employee engagement is now widely accepted as an important facet of corporate life, but these surveys must be carried out regularly if organisations are to properly monitor attitudes and improvements to engagement levels over time.

“Highly engaged colleagues can add enormous value to organisations. Surveys highlight areas where dissatisfaction and lack of understanding are creeping in, and will help companies pinpoint weaknesses in how they are supporting and communicating to their people.”
