Collecting Anonymous Responses

The anonymous survey link is perfect to collect responses with this template. Employee identities will be protected, and meta data can even be included in the link, such as the company region. This data is used to segment and filter the results. You may notice different business regions have different needs or concerns even though they are in the same business segment.

Anonymous emails could be another method of data collection. This would also give you the ability to add custom meta data, while also giving you the ability to send reminders to employees who have yet taken the survey.

  • How skilled at their jobs are the members of your team?
  • How confident are you that you can help your child can developer good friendships?
  • How well do members of your team share responsibility for tasks?
  • How often does your team meet its deadlines?

Unique Question Types for Better Data

To get a more accurate assessment, a MaxDiff or Ranking question can be used. Both question types are unique to SurveyKing. We include a MaxDiff question on this template to ask what can be done to best improve the department.

MaxDiff asks respondents to pick what is least and most important from a set of attributes, or in this case department improvements. Data from this question is actionable, and used to shape company decisions.
