How should I use the survey results?

No teams are exactly alike; no individual contributors will act or respond in the same manner. Ask questions, listen, and seek information that allows for a guided discussion leading to actions that work for your team's situation on their terms.

When you read and analyze your survey results, keep the following points in mind:

Focus on the high scores and look for recognition opportunities within the results. High scores indicate areas of strength. Take steps to ensure these items remain strengths. Think about what you and your team are doing to contribute to these strengths.

Think about where your team might experience the biggest increase in engagement. While you can do a lot to create a positive and productive environment, each employee needs to contribute to improving team engagement.

Your reports provide a snapshot in time of your team’s engagement level. The best way to understand the numbers and know what is going on in the team is to talk with your employees.

Remember that a high score (lots of blue) represents that this workplace need is constantly met. The best way to understand the numbers and know what is going on in the team is to talk with your employees.

Pay close attention to the key driver for you group as they are outlined on your individual manager report. These are the most important factors that influence engagement or disengagement for your group.

Every report tells a story. The data provide clues about the team's engagement, but not necessarily the whole story. Managers and teams should focus on the story and the meaning of the results and determine how this affects the work environment, rather than just concentrating on the numbers. Numbers cannot change an organization on their own; rather, it takes focused attention on the part of each team to create change.
