Employee Engagement Surveys are a great way to gauge the current engagement levels of your team. They can be used to learn more about the overall engagement of team members and the level of engagement in six defined areas. Each week team members will receive a survey that is completed anonymously and used to provide engagement data.
Employee engagement surveys help you to actively track engagement each week as efforts are made to improve it. They also provide actionable insights which can be used to improve workplace happiness and productivity.

Baseline Engagement & Weekly Surveys
Employee Engagement Surveys provide a manageable way to continuously evaluate the engagement level of your team. These surveys focus on 6 core areas of engagement:
- Support & Recognition
- Workplace Balance
- Career Development
- Ownership & Empowerment
Surveys are disabled by default and can be enabled by clicking into the Engagement section under the Team Checklist and selecting CLICK HERE within Good&Co Pro. For more information on enabling and using this feature, please see the Team Engagement section of the user guide.
Once enabled, each team member will be emailed a 30 question Baseline Survey. This survey provides the baseline data measurement that will be used as a benchmark against all future weekly engagement surveys.
After employees take the Baseline Survey, they are emailed a Weekly Survey every Monday consisting of 1 question in the 6 different areas of engagement.
Questions in the 6 areas presented within the Baseline Survey are rotated for each Weekly Survey to ensure team members are asked different questions each week.
These surveys raise awareness regarding the current engagement level of your teams and can be used to monitor progress as efforts are implemented to improve engagement.
Monitor and Improve Team Engagement
Survey data can be used to view detailed information about the engagement level of your team. No data will be presented until the end of the first week, throughout which the baseline data is collected.
After the baseline survey data has been collected, you will be able to view the overall engagement percentage for each of the 6 categories based on the answers provided by participating team members.
To access this information, click on Engagement and then CLICK HERE again within the Team Checklist panel of the dashboard.
The engagement data will be updated in Good&Co Pro after each weekly survey is closed. You can view the results for the current week and engagement trends based on the continuous feedback of each survey.
The Overall Engagement section shows the team engagement for each category covered within the baseline and weekly surveys. Engagement percentage levels are displayed for the team as a whole:
- Engaged (Agreed or Strongly Agreed with survey statements)
- Neutral (Selected ‘Neither’ in response to survey statements)
- Disengaged (Disagreed or Strongly Disagreed with survey statements)
You can click on an engagement area to view how team members responded to individual questions within that area. This data can be used to identify specific areas for improvement within the team. If engagement is low in one or more areas, actions can be taken to make improvements.
The Trend Graph located below this information may be used to view and track engagement trends over the last 8 weeks. Here, you can see how engagement levels change over the 8 week period as team members complete the weekly survey.
The insights can be used to determine if applied improvement efforts are making a difference. As weekly surveys are completed, you can track the effectiveness of implemented measures. Additionally, it can also help in pinpointing developing engagement risk areas before they become a serious problem!
