Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
The second editions of the “Employee Survey Question Guidebook” and its companion volume, “Employee Surveys: Practical and Proven Methods, Samples, Examples” have been published by Performance Programs, Inc. Used together, these books provide everything an organization needs to create, administer, and interpret an employee survey. For the first time, both volumes are available as e-books as well as hardcopy book format.
“These books are a unique resource 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 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 from his firm for 85 items, including industry norms for employee surveys in 11 industries.
The “Employee Survey Question Guidebook” is organized into 18 dimensions that reflect key aspects of organizational effectiveness, such as organization culture and climate, organization structure, co-workers and teams, commitment, performance management, and more. The eighteen dimensions have 82 themes. For instance, themes such as ethical conduct, workplace diversity, fairness, innovation and creativity, and many more, are located within organization culture and climate. The Guidebook also features an easy-to-use index to symptoms of organizational dysfunction and references appropriate diagnostic questions.
“Employee Surveys: Practical and Proven Methods, Samples, Examples” is a how-to resource that aims to increase the survey project manager’s effectiveness and sense of 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 a survey, forming a survey project team, identifying respondents, designing reports, use of 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.
