When planning for an employee survey, you need to be very clear what you want to achieve with your survey. Get focus and ignore non-essentials.

Indeed, we need to focus on only what's important and ignore others! This is just what Peter Bregman prescribed in his blog on HRB. Peter advised that we focus on two lists: your focus list - what you want to achieve and what's important to you; and your ignore list - what are you willing to let go and what's not important to you. Likewise, when planning for an employee survey, you need to have a focus list of topics that you want to survey and ignore other irrelevant topics at this time.

Happy New Year! I’ve been working hard in the past few months with my designer, Acacia Carr, to redesign our website. And now it’s here!

A recent Corporate Executive Board (CEB) study of 983 employees in the financial industry found that compensation is not a key driver of employee retention although it has a very low satisfaction score (satisfaction with compensation ranked 35th out of 38 attributes surveyed). Before you roll your eyes and say “really?” Please pause and think about it. Who wouldn’t want to be paid more? And who would agree that they are compensated sufficiently even if they are well paid?
