Hi Sonia,

I'd like to draw your attention away from Climate Survey and towards, Engagement Surveys (ES) . ES is a more proactive measure more so various researches have established that Engagement rather than Climate alone is a much better measure and has stronger linkages with employee experience and business results..

However the approach you choose depends largely on the industry, organisational culture, HR Bandwidth, Budgets and the employee demographics you are looking at.

Some of the better known methodologies are Gallup's Q12 (Easily Available on the WebSearch) or Hewitt's Stay, Say, Serve, - Model, and many others.

For Survey Templates you can search the Google for "Free Employee Survey" and or other combination of similar words. But it is always better to go with an experienced agency to be able to draw correlations and pin-point the opportunities for improvement.

And most importantly its important to act on the results, maintain confidentiality of respondents, show actions and improvements based on feedback received. Else its easy for the employees to treat this as yet another HR gimmick.

Hope this helps

Not all loyalty/employee-satisfaction is good for the company (and not all unhappiness is bad for the company). Most of the ES surveys fail to distinguish this subtle but critical difference.

there is a powerful model is by Dr. Ashok Malhotra (ex-Chairman, Ma Foi) He has developed excellent model on employee engagement. Model is called 'Empact"= Employee Pact. This model takes care of these differences... Four quadrants of Good/Bad - Satisfaction/dis-satisfaction.

He owns a OD consultancy. Also offers services on this model. You should be able to get his contact details from any Ma foi offices.

Note - I have not used this model, since I am not in that domain, but I have studied this model and it made immense sense to me.
