Question Types and Their Reporting

Overview

There are a few critical steps that are required to get the best results from your employee survey. We believe that asking the right questions and using the correct Question Types is at the top of the list. Using the right question type for the question you’re asking can be the key to unlocking the data and insights that may have remained uncovered. 

As a result, Workify offers multiple question types in order to give you the flexibility you need to design the right survey for your organization. Below we will go through each of the question types we offer and an example of what the reporting will look like.

Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS)

 eNPS questions are used to understand how positively team members feel about the overall employment experience and gauge the level of employee advocacy at the company. We are proponents of the traditional eNPS question  which is asked on a scale of 0 to 10. Since eNPS is based on a score that has a specific calculation, it is important to use the eNPS question type for eNPS rather than Ranged Response.
