Remote working (Survey)

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

This set is perfect for teams that work remotely and covers communication & inclusion, well-being, and setup & resources. The set can be used in isolation or combined with our culture set to prompt a variety of conversations about the remote employee experience.

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 rated scale questions followed by 1 open text question for each category, as survey's are naturally measurement focused over conversational.
    • The open text questions for each category relates directly to the rated scale question asked immediately before it to ensure a logical flow for the participants.
    • Including messages, instructions and encouragement throughout the survey helps with understanding and engagement.

📝Note: This survey can be also be run as a weekly conversation set instead.
