Employee opinion surveys

An employee opinion survey, or “employee attitude survey”, is designed to gain an understanding of employees' opinions about their workplace.

An employer might carry out an employee opinion survey on a regular basis (for example, annually) seeking information on the general attitudes of employees across a range of areas related to the workforce.

An employer might also conduct a specific survey from time to time to ascertain employees' reactions to a particular work situation, problem or event.
