Performance Appraisals Questions in Your Employee Engagement Survey

We’ve discussed the importance of an employee engagement survey, and how we create and conduct them. Now let’s address the survey questions themselves. At Flex Surveys, we break down our employee engagement survey into different sections to address the topics you want covered. One of those sections has performance appraisals questions. This set of questions acts like performance appraisals that you hold with your employees individually – the difference  – in the employee engagement survey, employees are assessing their roles for you.

Topics Covered in Performance Appraisals Questions

The topics the performance appraisals questions on an employee engagement survey cover everything related to your employees’ positions at your company; giving you a real idea about how your staff feels while working for you. Topics in this section include employees’ work relationship with their managers, how they feel their work is valued, if they feel like they’re being managed proper, and how they think your company treats employees.

To give feedback, employees rate their experience on a scale from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree. Some questionnaire questions include:

      • I receive regular constructive feedback on my overall job performance
      • I receive timely recognition on the quality of my work
      • My performance appraisals are useful in helping me to improve my job performance
      • My supervisor tells me promptly if my performance needs improvement
      • ABC COMPANY does a good job at manage poor performers to help them improve

How Will the Performance Appraisals Questions Suit My Company?

The performance appraisals section covers how your employees feel in their positions at your company, but the questions themselves and how they’re formatted in an employee engagement survey can vary depending on the industry you work in, the size of your company, and your location.

Few Managers – Smaller companies may not have a lot of managers, or there may be only one person who everyone reports to, so the performance appraisals questions may only ask about the company as a whole instead of addressing individual managers.

Large Companies – Big corporations that span different industries, departments, and locations may have a more detailed performance appraisals sections to address managers, supervisors, department heads, and the company as a whole.

Locations – Some companies have offices in different locations, so the performance appraisals questions may differ from location to location, based on the different needs and structure of different branches.

Responses – To have more detailed responses and a comprehensive report, companies can also include a written portion in the performance appraisals questions section of an employee engagement survey to truly understand why employees feel positively or negatively in their roles. Or for a faster employee engagement survey, like our Flex 15 template, you can choose to ask fewer questions in the performance appraisals section.

No matter the size of your company or the industry you work in, at Flex Surveys we will work with you to create performance appraisals questions that suit your needs.

 Why Performance Appraisals Questions Are Important

It’s always good to receive feedback and criticism – how else can we improve? And it’s best to receive feedback straight from the horse’s mouth.

Your employees have direct experience working for you within your company culture, so they know your business inside out. It’s important that your employee engagement survey captures honest responses of what it’s like to work at your company to address any employee retention concerns, and to see what else you can do to keep your employees engaged; not only do they work for you, but they also work and know your clients, so you want them feeling at their best so they can give your business and clients the care they deserve.
