The Importance of Anonymity in Employee Surveys
Employee surveys are a valuable tool for organizations to collect feedback, measure engagement, and identify areas of improvement. However, for employee surveys to be effective, they need to be designed and conducted in a way that ensures anonymity and confidentiality of the respondents. Anonymity means that the survey results cannot be traced back to individual employees.

5 Ways the Cloud Improves Employee Satisfaction
Your work environment and all of its processes are constantly evolving depending on your industry and emerging innovations. For a few years now, cloud computing has been at the forefront of all those changes, allowing businesses to adapt more quickly and to help their employees thrive. Cloud tech is known for its flexibility, reliability, and ever-growing security. Naturally, brands of all shapes and sizes are doing their best to maximize its use across the board.
However, most companies don’t see beyond the perks that aid the processes themselves, so they delay introducing newer solutions or more advanced tools and protocols. In reality, the cloud primarily benefits the people that use it every day: your employees. The crucial element here is that it’s not enough to just have some cloud solution available, but to actually put it to use properly and strategically.
Understanding the impact cloud technology can have on your teams might serve as the perfect inspiration for implementing more versatile cloud-based options. Here, we’ll tackle a few of the most notable benefits you can expect your employees to experience as soon as you start using your cloud solution to its full potential.
5 Reasons Why DIY Employee Surveys Are Bad Practice
I recently came across an article on Vox.com with an intriguing headline.
Jeff Bezos says 94% of Amazon workers would recommend their job to a friend.
Bullshit, I thought. In over 20 years of surveying employees on their job satisfaction we have never, ever encountered a score anywhere close to that high for that particular question. How on earth could Amazon then? Turns out it's not so rosy as it might appear. The number comes from an internal survey of employees, and Amazon, like many companies these days have decided to conduct the survey themselves in-house. The article goes on to explain it:
There's a simple explanantion why Amazon employees have concerns. If this survey is being conducted by in-house HR, then it's not anonymous. And if workers believe they are being tracked and their responses are monitored by HR they simply will not be honest. As I wrote in a LinkedIn post a few years ago, anonymity is critical for the success of any kind of employee feedback system. That's still true today, even with the proliferation of DIY survey tools out there, using a trusted 3rd party to conduct your employee survey is the only way to guarantee that you are getting accurate data.
