The employee experience survey that won’t sit in your desk drawer

4 min read

The Predictive Index recently announced the launch of the PI Talent Optimization Edition.

In addition to the PI Strategy Assessment™, the launch included another exciting new product: the PI Employee Experience Survey™.

While most businesses measure success in terms of numbers—such as EBITDA, profits, and sales results—many don’t consider how their people impact their business. But the cost of poor engagement is high: increased turnover and absenteeism, reduced productivity, lower customer satisfaction ratings, and more. 

The PI Employee Experience Survey not only measures employee engagement at your company—it also provides actionable insights to help you turn disengagement around fast.

Here’s how the PI Employee Experience Survey benefits your business:

Understand the causes of disengagement—and engagement.

The PI Employee Experience Survey digs deep to the root of engagement issues. It provides employees a chance to provide candid, confidential feedback across four categories strongly related to engagement:

  • Job
  • Manager
  • Organization
  • People on their team

Why is collecting and acting on this feedback important? Because if a single element is out of alignment, employees can become disengaged and less productive. This disengagement and decreased productivity costs your business a lot of money—but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Get actionable insights.

Your employees have completed the PI Employee Experience Survey—now what? Unlike other reports that churn out some numbers and leave them up for interpretation, you’ll receive a report with actionable insights. 

These insights are ranked according to what impacts engagement most. For example, the response to the statement “I trust the senior leaders of this organization” holds more weight than “I feel that my manager genuinely cares about me as a person” because the former more strongly impacts engagement. 

(Not sure what’s a “good” score? Your report also includes benchmarks to help you gauge how you’re doing compared to other organizations.)

Narrow in results by team.

Sometimes engagement issues aren’t company-wide, but rather isolated within a team or department. You’ll receive a report that will help you understand the state of the whole organization overall. Managers will also receive their own results so they can focus on issues specific to their teams.

For the sake of anonymity, team reports are only provided for teams with five or more employees. These micro reports allow you to take action on issues impacting engagement on a specific team. For example, maybe your organization as a whole scores well on the engagement item “I am appropriately recognized for a job well done.” But one team received a score much lower than the average. That team might decide to put more effort into recognizing and rewarding employees for the work they do as a way to increase engagement. 

Take the guesswork out of improving engagement.

If you read an article online about how to boost engagement, chances are the tips are high-level so they can apply to any organization. But what does your organization need to do to improve engagement? 

The PI Employee Experience Survey has been researched and refined extensively to ensure the results you get actually impact employee engagement. 

Take it from Kasey Konkright, Director of Talent at FAM: “So many companies just throw people at problems instead of fixing problems, inhibiting the ability to allow current employees to thrive and produce,” said Konkright. “[The PI Employee Experience Survey] has been so much better than what we did last year because now we can write on a whiteboard all the things that we could potentially solve and [prioritize]. It’s been really great.”
