What is a Pulse Survey?
A Pulse Survey is an opportunity for organizations to gather real-time feedback from their employees. Just as other features of Small Improvements enable employees to gather feedback on how they’re doing, Pulse Surveys do the same, but for organizations themselves.
Unlike annual employee surveys, pulse surveys aim to take place more frequently and tend to be more lightweight. These surveys are designed to track the impact of company initiatives and changing environments on employee morale over time.
Confidentiality and anonymity
Pulse Surveys in Small Improvements are confidential. Survey responses are aggregated in our reports for organizations, with a minimum group size of three people. Read this article, Confidentiality and Anonymity, for more information.
