Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) June 16, 2006
Two new books provide everything an organization needs to create, administer, and interpret an employee survey. The “Employee Survey Question Guidebook” and its companion volume, “Employee Surveys: Practical and Proven Methods, Samples, Examples” have been revised and updated in a second edition by Performance Programs, Inc. For the first time, both volumes are available as e-books as well as in print.
“These books are unique in the human resources field, as far as we know,” says author Paul M. Connolly, Ph.D., president of Performance Programs, Inc. “We know of no other resource where employers can obtain such a robust set of 700 field-tested questionnaire items, along with complete instructions for their selection and use.”
The Guidebook is based on Connolly’s 20-plus years of experience in organizational assessment. “All of the questionnaire items have been field-tested in real organizations,” he says. “Typically, organizations use employee surveys to determine employee job satisfaction, engagement, commitment, morale, and motivation. The Guidebook supports all of those goals.” He adds that norms are available for 85 items, including industry norms for employee surveys in 11 industries.
The “Employee Survey Question Guidebook” is organized to capture key aspects of organizational effectiveness, such as organization culture and climate, organization structure, co-workers, team functioning, commitment, performance management, ethical conduct, workplace diversity, fairness, innovation and creativity, and many more. In all, there are 82 categories of questions. The Guidebook also features an easy-to-use index to symptoms of organizational dysfunction and references appropriate diagnostic areas. The print version retails for $125.00 plus shipping; the e-book retails for $110.
“Employee Surveys: Practical and Proven Methods, Samples, Examples” is a how-to resource that aims to increase the survey project manager’s know-how and confidence. From initial concept to final reports, the book includes myriad real-world situations that employers may not expect or know how to handle. Topics include planning, forming a survey project team, identifying respondents, designing reports, norms, questionnaire creation, data gathering and processing, awareness campaigns, administration, feedback, and action plans. At each step, the human side of survey work is addressed. The print book retails for $24 plus shipping; the e-book retails for $20.
