Dr. Theresa M. Welbourne of eePulse, Inc., and the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, today announced the current Leadership PulseT study results. In this Pulse Dialogue, the focus was on what leaders think about surveys. A total of six questions asked participants to rate the degree to which they thought surveys were evil and to respond to the value of surveys.

"We find that surveys are being used more and more within organizations given the onslaught of free and low-cost web-based tools, and at the same time, we are hearing from employees that they are frustrated by the number of surveys, poor question quality, and lack of action associated with these tools," states Welbourne. "In order to explore the topic in more depth, we asked the leaders who generally budget for, approve and use surveys to share their opinions on the topic."

Results
Based on a scale where 1 = strongly disagree and 5 = strongly agree, 307 respondents indicated average ratings of:

1.95 I believe annual employee surveys are evil
2.17 I believe customer surveys are evil
2.87 The annual survey we use at my company is something all employees value
2.88 There is a definite and high ROI from our annual employee survey
2.89 When I receive a customer service survey, I feel much better about the company
3.23 I experience high value from participating in customer surveys

Within the job-function sub-groups, the following were most likely to think employee surveys are evil:

• 23% Research and Development (not information technology or IT) • 22% Engineering • 20% Finance and Accounting • 19% Marketing • 17% Manufacturing.

Extreme questions on surveys being evil were included to add some "lightness" to the study as a survey was used to ask about surveys). "Not surprising, most respondents did not consider either employee or customer surveys to be "evil," but we did not anticipate the degree of ambiguity and general dislike of surveys expressed by most in the respondent population," states Welbourne. "Even those who responded with relatively positive numbers had negative comments about the process."

Noting that none of the scores are high at all, Dr. Welbourne suggests that the way surveys are used is in need of a dramatic overhaul. "Surveys need to be transformed from their current state of score taking and disengaging employees, managers, and customers to a process that adds high value through intense dialogue and learning," she states.
