Survey Monkey Employer Surveys.

  1. Got another survey monkey survey, this time about the staffing matrix and has it met the stated goals.

    I never like the way the questions are worded on these. They always seem limiting and slanted. I feel, if you really want to know what people think, ask them to explain their viewpoint.

    What do you all think?

    I'm bringing up the subject of the use of survey monkey to survey employees.

    I personally would prefer open ended questions with an opportunity to freely write my thoughts on the subject matter.

    I dislike the multiple choice format.

    All feedback is welcome as long as it's A, B, C, or D. Gotcha!

    Do you

    A) Strongly agree?

    B) Somewhat agree?

    C) Neither agree or disagree?

    D) Somewhat disagree?

    E) Strongly disagree?


    I think we should add: F) I think the writer of this survey is an unimaginative desk jockey who is out of touch with reality!

    How about F) My opinion quotient has already been reached today, and I'm mindlessly clicking options on this survey while I dream about which beverage I'll be consuming when I get home from work.

    @Emergent RN, I absolutely agree with you. The endless surveys online can become tedious and are often just to show some data! What do you think the best way is to communicate with an entire department?

    I never do them. While they claim to be anonymous I dont trust it at all.

    Our Practice Council recently sent out a Survey Monkey asking staff about their opinions on our projects. The select all that apply questions resulted in pretty useless data. In contrast, the write-in responses were fascinating. Not only did people bring up problems, but they also brainstormed some pretty creative solutions that we hadn't thought of.

    I don't mind the strongly agree/neutral/strongly disagree format, but it must have an option to comment; if I feel strongly enough about something to strongly disagree, I want to tell you why it's a problem and how I'd prefer that we do things differently. Knowing that people are dissatisfied or frustrated is useless if you don't know why.
