Remote Working Survey

Run a remote working survey to crowdsource ideas for improving the experience of your remote workers.

We recommend keeping surveys below 10 minutes to complete. Long surveys can cause fatigue and result in poor data quality.

Survey structure

    • Questions are grouped by category to ensure that the survey is easy to follow for participants.
    • We recommend asking 3 - 10 rating scale questions followed by 1 open text question for each category as surveys are naturally measurement-focused over conversational.
    • The open question for each category seeks ideas and solutions for improvement.
    • We discourage exceeding 20 questions per survey, as this results in survey fatigue.
    • Messages, instructions and encouragement throughout the survey help with pace setting and engagement.
