But surprisingly few has any strategy for how the results from the employees should be used, according to researchers at Lund’s University that is currently looking at the surveys.

Quicksearchs contribution

Our participation is of the property of experts on employee surveys and Ulrica Björnhag, CEO at Quicksearch, talks generally about our experience in the field. Differences between successful and less successful works. How important a strategy is before an implementation and also how a dream scenario could look like.

The questions that will be answered are among others.

  • Do you have to have a strategy before you start measuring?
  • Why is it important to do employee surveys?
  • The most common mistakes that companies make when they start with an employee survey?
  • Is there any difference between public authorities and private companies?
