Employee Engagement Surveys

Measure and improve employee engagement
with confidence by partnering with the experts.

What to Measure

During a survey customization meeting, we get to know your organization so we can measure the topics that your employees care about. A DecisionWise consultant will help you tailor your employee engagement survey using tested, validated, and benchmarked questions that measure the key attributes of a great workplace. 

We start with our standard set of 44 questions to measure several indices and themes:

  • Engagement Index
  • Intent to Stay Index
  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Index
  • Meaning, Autonomy, Growth, Impact, and Connection (MAGIC)
  • Manager Effectiveness
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Safety
  • Customer Focus
  • Compensation & Benefits
  • Open-ended Comments

Dynamic Online Employee Survey Reporting

You and your leaders will be amazed by the flexibility and power of our online employee survey reporting platform. We even gave it a cool name, the Leadership Intelligence™ System, or LIS for short. LIS allows you to dive deep into your data using dynamic filters to see any combination of groups. There are several purpose-built report templates that create awesome visualizations and point out specific action-planning opportunities. LIS also generates prescriptive manager reports that tell leaders what to do and actually get used. Need slide decks for each department? No problem. Best of all, we set it all up for you so there is no need to learn a complex BI tool.

Just Tell Me What to Do

Managers are busy but they play a crucial role in the success of an employee engagement survey. So, we make it easy by empowering each manager with a detailed team report that includes instruction and action-planning guidance with prescriptive recommendations. Content is pulled from a library of curated resources to help managers think about, learn, and implement strategies for driving engagement. Our recommendations library consists of DecisionWise best practices along with influential articles, TED Talks, videos, etc.

What’s the Story in Your Data?

Every day, our consultants wade knee-deep in data working with HR and executive teams to analyze employee survey results, debrief leaders, and facilitate action-planning activities. This gives us unique perspectives on what’s going on in your industry so we can tell you how you stack up and what is working in other organizations. We know what to look for under the hood and detect the leverage points that are most important for your success. Our big deliverable is an executive slide deck that tells the story, summarizes the key findings, and compels your leaders to take action. Whether you are new to this or a veteran multiple-regression data nerd, we have experts to help you up your game.

We Got This

Did we mention that we do all the work? Well, most of it. You just need to send us an employee data file and decide on your survey questions. A fanatical yet friendly project manager takes charge, sets up and runs the survey, and provides expert guidance along the way. You get a detailed project plan, best practice advice, and secure and accurate data collection. And we conduct employee engagement surveys in virtually any format: online via email, text, kiosk, or on paper. We take this seriously so you can focus on your other priorities.

We Wrote the Book on Employee Engagement

ENGAGEMENT MAGIC ® : Five Keys for Engaging People, Leaders, and Organizations shows how managers can leverage the five keys, Meaning, Autonomy, Growth, Impact, and Connection, to help employees achieve high engagement.

Most leaders understand that engaged employees are passionate about their jobs and deliver better results, and most of us know what it’s like to either be engaged or disengaged in a workplace where we spend most of our waking hours. Yet, most don’t understand how it really works.

Based on over 28 million employee survey responses across 70 countries-the most extensive employee survey database of its kind-ENGAGEMENT MAGIC ® combines principles of psychology and motivation with solid business concepts. Written by internationally recognized experts in leadership and engaging employees, ENGAGEMENT MAGIC ® provides actionable advice that will reduce employee attrition, encourage initiative, drive growth and profit, and increase personal engagement in one’s work.


An employee engagement survey provides insight, but managers need to learn how engagement works to be effective. Based on our book, ENGAGEMENT MAGIC: Five Keys for Engaging People, Leaders, and Organizations, the DecisionWise ENGAGEMENT MAGIC® Online Training Course is an intensive learning experience that provides an in-depth understanding of how to create an engaged culture.

Hmm. Sounds Expensive.

Because we do this all the time, we have it down to a science. Even though our solution offers much more than a DIY employee engagement survey software platform, it is very comparable in cost. Let’s see if we can make this work.
