you login to a work survey as yourself, it says it's anonymous

  1. 1. you login to a work survey as yourself, it says it's anonymous

    • You answer truthfully
    • You say what they want to hear because you know they CAN find out who said what.

17 members have participated

We receive online surveys from work once or twice a year. We have to login with our user names, but they say they are anonymous.:rolleyes:

You can write what you think after each question or choose "agree" "disagree" or "neither agree nor disagree"

Some people feel like management can find out, if they want, who said what, so they always answer positively, others put what they really think.

What do you think? How do you answer work surveys where you login as yourself, truthfully or not?

I answer truthfully. I don't care if they know who's saying what. What I write is the truth. Heck, one year I wrote so much in the comment box that I had to go back and creatively edit because I exceeded the maximum characters.

What did I write about? The fact that vacations were denied because there isn't enough staff to handle letting one person off, the fact that scrubs are never stocked (and those of us in the OR can't just wear scrubs from home), the fact that there isn't enough positioning equipment and we're stealing from one room to be able to do a case in another, things like that. I am a patient advocate; part of that is advocating for enough staff, equipment, and supplies.

I wrote once that I will respond neutrally till my employee number removed from the login, after what I feel like I can speak the truth.

I have spent time behind the scenes with these surveys. Ours truly are anonymous. However, we do not use any identifiers yo log in.

I respond truthfully, but I'm just old and cranky and don't care any more. ;) Plus I'm a good nurse and excellent employee with the yearly performance evaluations and thick file full of patient commendations to back me up. If they want to come after me for speaking the truth, I say BRING IT ON.

Yep. I tell them exactly what I think. I don't care if they do know it was me.

I reply truthfully, though I do try to be tactful. If asked, and sometimes even when I'm not asked, I'll tell management exactly what's on my mind, though again, I try to be tactful. I will not say something behind somebody's back that I will not say to their face, including management. It's only when I've given up on a place that I'm no longer willing to put myself out there and engage TPTB.

The user name or employee number is to attibute you to a clinical area so that the correct manger gets the results ro action. I have veen involved in administering a survey like this. Yes If you really want to the comments can be interrogated and the person unveiled but as they are run by an external company it takes so long that it is not worth it unless it is very serious e.g. you are being sexually harassed by a colleague.

The concept is to look at comments and scores as a whole and to take action on them versus individual comments.
