Article Summary: 

Pulse surveys are an agile, modern way to tap into the heartbeat of an organization and truly understand the voice of the employee (VoE). Companies typically use a large-scale annual engagement survey to measure one of HR’s key metrics and create an action plan. Pulse surveys are nimble, fast, and – in some cases – free, making it possible and highly cost-effective to administer frequent, targeted pulse surveys on a survey cadence that keeps you in touch with the “pulse” of what your employees are thinking and feeling. They can address many of the business challenges companies are facing today, including employee engagement, retention, productivity, and other organizational metrics. Pulse surveys provide a real-time view of employee engagement, are free from bias, support peer-to-peer commentary, and deliver insights that can be acted upon quickly and effectively.

To choose the right pulse survey tool, it is important to consider key features such as data science baked in, powered by AI7, natural language processing, benchmarking, and no limits. These features will help you select the best tool for your needs and advance your company values. The most important details in this text are that pulse surveys should be set and forgotten, and that they should generate intelligent, actionable recommendations to address employee experience challenges. Pulse survey templates and sample questions are available from Moodtracker, a free employee pulse survey tool from Workhuman. These templates provide built-in functionality to guide the selection and composition of questions and align with survey goals. Additionally, Moodtracker offers a variety of surveys to help understand and support employees' success as they transition from the home office to a shared space.
