WHY uSPEQ EMPLOYEE CLIMATE SURVEY IS IMPORTANT

Employees are the backbone of your organization. They are the people planning, developing, and delivering products and services. Employees implement your mission and vision.

Satisfied employees experience better mental well-being (Faragher, Cass, & Cooper, 2005), including:

  • Less burnout.
  • Less depression.
  • Less anxiety.
  • Higher self-esteem.

High turnover rates are one of the major challenges faced by organizations today. The costs associated with employee turnover can represent as much as five percent of an annual operating budget (Waldman et al., 2004). In addition, research has shown that job candidates referred by an organization's employees tend to stay on the job longer (Nalbantian & Szostak, 2004).

Knowing how satisfied employees are provides important insight into the health and climate of your organization. As an independent third party, the uSPEQ Employee Climate Survey provides an important vehicle for your employees to voice their opinions and perceptions about organizational climate.

Happier, more engaged, and productive employees lead to increased customer satisfaction, better products and services, and organizational sustainability.
