It is important to use valid and reliable questions in the survey that you are prepared to address. A poorly designed survey can create more problems than solutions. Asking questions that the company is not willing to take action on is more likely to disengage employees than engage them. Often, organizations want to ask questions about compensation with the belief that it has a link to employee engagement. Somewhat surprisingly, research shows that compensation is not a major driver of employee engagement. Furthermore, companies are very likely to receive negative feedback on compensation questions, but are often not ready to take action on them.
