Old Saybrook, Conn (PRWEB) March 8, 2007
How do America's workers feel about their jobs? Their companies? Their bosses? Their fellow workers?
America is about to find out. Human resources publisher Business & Legal Reports, Inc. (BLR) has announced its first nationwide employee attitude survey, called the "National Employee Attitude Survey (NEAS)".
Co-sponsor is BLR's free daily email newsletter of practical HR tips, HR Daily Advisor.
The survey asks thousands of employers to help BLR send a questionnaire to their workers, asking about workplace communication, supervision, teamwork and chances for advancement. Experts have long linked these issues to employee morale and retention, major factors in business success.
Survey is free, and asks minimal effort from employers.
In return, every participating employer will receive a free, custom-written, confidential report on their own workers' attitudes, and how they compare to those at like companies nationwide. BLR has run similar surveys on compensation and benefits for 25 years.
BLR's CEO Bob Brady highlighted the importance of comparing results with other companies. "Employers can finally benchmark their results against others, something most haven't been able to do" he said, "and find out if problems are theirs alone or larger than that.
"And because the survey is free," he added, "even smaller organizations can learn their employees' attitudes, perhaps for the first time."
He added that the survey had been designed for minimal effort by employers. "They sign up, email a link to employees that accesses the 15-minute questionnaire, and the next thing they see is their report," he said.
