Survey tool helps companies understand what makes employees tick

    TORONTO, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - The Beacon Group has launched the Employee
Survey (ES) web-based tool that can be easily and effectively deployed at
small and mid-sized businesses to combat the growing trend of burnt out and
disengaged employees.

    28% of Canadians say their employers are only average.

    8% of Canadians say their employers deserve a below average score.

    3% of Canadians say their employers were failing to engage them.

    According to the same poll from RBC conducted in November 2007, 18% of
Canadians find their workplace depressing and another 15% are completely bored
at work. It's clear Canadian employers are facing lower levels of employee
engagement in an increasingly competitive and global "war for talent".
    "Small and mid-size businesses are particularly vulnerable to lower
employee engagement" said Michael Sitayeb, Director of Product Development &
Marketing at The Beacon Group. "We're talking about a category of companies
that doesn't necessarily implement employee surveys or any other form of
collecting feedback from employees."
    Employee Surveys have long proven to be an essential tool of good
business management and a critical means of measuring the ongoing
effectiveness of an organization's policies, practices and programs. In
addition, when gathering sensitive and confidential feedback it is important
to get honest opinions by ensuring that employees have confidence that their
inputs are being handled by an outside party charged with maintaining their
personal confidentiality.
    Usually, survey questions range from topics on general work environment,
management, compensation issues and other matters. The administration
requirements are assessed and the necessary information is gathered in order
to manage the survey from start to finish, providing a written report,
analysis and a presentation of the results and any necessary follow-up.
