The Acas Employee Feedback Survey is different
Acas is offering an employee feedback survey with a difference. Going much further than the standard 'engagement' survey, Acas will include an on-hand adviser throughout the survey and reporting process, to ensure that it's not just the fieldwork that runs smoothly, but the employment relations side too.
The expert Acas adviser will interpret the findings in a detailed 20-to-30-page report and plan the next steps for your organisation, drawing on the time already spent with you in your workplace, and experience of resolving employment relations issues. The adviser will also make a formal presentation about the results to key stakeholders in your organisation.
After initial consultation with you, your Acas adviser will come up with a tailor-made plan for the research and fieldwork, and work with you and your employee or trade union representatives to make sure everyone is well informed about the undertaking.
The fieldwork itself is carried out by professional researchers using paper questionnaires or online systems, both of which are confidential. The turnaround is quick: typically it takes three to four weeks from the adviser's first visit, with results available within a month after the fieldwork is finished.
Organisations have much to gain from understanding how their employees feel about things that matter to them, such as workload, relations with management, sense of achievement, pay and reward, trust, communication, prospects and job security. All of these can have a direct impact on motivation and performance.
As well getting an insight in how you can help increase your employees' sense of inclusion, wellbeing and engagement, you may find that improvements following a survey will boost productivity and make for even better workplace relations. This might include a reduced number of grievances, reduced absence rates, lower employee turnover, fewer workplace conflicts, fewer disciplinary incidents, and fewer claims to employment tribunals.
