Employment Surveys

WCI produces several different kinds of surveys for our members, as described below. They provide valuable tools for measuring everything from workplace culture to specific employer practices, to help you develop a strategic culture of employee retention.














One of the keys of ongoing success for companies is measuring their employee culture.  WCI's Employee Opinion Survey will allow your organization’s management to gain accurate insights and meaningful measurements of your actual workplace culture. While there are many inexpensive online alternatives, they are not nearly as robust, precise, or offer the degree of analytics and expertise that the WCI system provides.

The Employee Opinion Survey is comprised of 27 carefully crafted questions about:

  • The Company
  • Supervision
  • Work environment
  • Communications
  • Motivation
  • Support for the company

The Survey Processing:

  • Measures and builds reports separately for management, technical/professional, and hourly employee groups by shift and supervisor
  • Analyzes statistics, critical issues, and culture from statistical as well as narrative data supplied by employees, and prepared by a behavior/organizational science professional
  • Provides professional recommendations for any area that may need remedial action to ensure good attitudes and employee engagement
  • Final results are delivered by WCI advisors in an executive wrap to management
  • These surveys are essential for improving employee relations, determining union vulnerability, and strengthening employee loyalty

Our surveys provide employers with up-to-date and detailed information about what other employers are doing, confidentially of course, so you can provide competitive compensation, benefits, and practices that help you enhance employee satisfaction and retention. Survey participants and new members receive surveys at no charge.
