Include Custom Questions in your #BeHeard Survey 

Curious what custom questions you should add to your #BeHeard Survey?

In our survey, you have an opportunity to add up to five 5-star rating questions and five open ended questions to tailor it specifically to your culture and interests. With our dual rating scale, your customized 5-star rating questions will measure effectiveness AND employee importance, just like our statistically valid #BeHeard Survey questions. After all, what might be important to the company may not be important to the employees, so this will give you additional insight.

Need ideas? No problem, check out some of the survey question ideas below. These examples are also a great resource to share during team meetings to decide what questions will work best for your culture and the feedback that you need. 

Please note that the survey question examples below should be reviewed by your HR and legal teams to ensure appropriate compliance and approval.
