  • (1888PressRelease) August 27, 2012 - London, United Kingdom - Employee surveys are a significant investment that costs both time and money, but they can deliver sustainable value when the employer makes a visible effort to listen and engage to the survey's results. 75% of the FTSE 100 run employee surveys to listen to employee opinions and act on them to maintain their engagement; they are an effective management tool that can make a real difference in any sized company.

    However, People Insight recently researched employee belief in the surveys taking place in their workplace and found that only 50% of employees believe that their employer will respond to the survey's findings. Therefore, more than half of employees asked felt that their opinion is most likely not valued within their workplace. People Insight is now encouraging employers across the country to carefully listen to their staff surveys and then focus on action planning in order to make a real difference in their organisation.

    A spokesperson for People Insight commented: "Our recent employee survey research found that many employees in the UK believe that they are a waste of time and that no changes will come from offering their opinion. However, employers who do listen and most importantly respond to their employees often see much higher levels of employee engagement and trust. With this in mind, we encourage all employers to take the action stage of employee surveys much more seriously in order to improve productivity and engagement within the workplace."
