When designing the survey, ensure a balance of quantitative (scaled or multiple-choice) and qualitative (open-ended) questions to gather both statistical data and detailed insights.
Keep the survey concise to encourage participation and consider anonymity to encourage honest responses. Regularly conduct staff surveys to track changes over time and make informed decisions based on the feedback received.
You can use online platforms such as Typeform or Survey Monkey to collect the responses.
The most important thing is to act on the feedback!
