Unique Question Types for Better Data

Asking simple multiple choice questions on your benefits survey wont paint the full picture of what employees truly value. To get a more accurate assessment, a MaxDiff or Ranking question can be used. Both question types are unique to SurveyKing and are included in the survey template. Below is a quick explanation of how they can add valve data to your survey.

MaxDiff

This question type ask respondents to pick what is least and most important from a set of attributes, or in this case individual benefits. Data from this question can be used to shape new benefits offerings and even find cost savings. You might notice PTO is more important than a lower health care deductible. This is actionable data that can be used to shape a benefits package.

Collecting Anonymous Responses

The anonymous survey link is perfect to collect responses with this template. Identities will be protected, and meta data can even be included in the link, such as employee department. This data is used to segment and filter the results. You may notice younger employee value PTO and older employees value a higher 401k match. That type of granular data can help tailored custom benefits packages to make different employee groups happy.

Employee Benfit Survey Questions

Not all of these questions are included in the template, but these will help guide you to modifying the template to your needs.

  • Do you understand all of the benefits our company offers?
  • Does our healthcare package cover your needs?
  • What is your favorite benefit at our company?
  • Are they any additional benefits you would like to see us add?
  • Do you feel additional resources like retirement planning assistance or more HR guidance for healthcare options would be beneficial ?

Employee Benfit Survey Sample Data

Simple satisfaction questions, such as multiple choice or dropdowns, will include a bar or pie chart along with a data table.

Advanced question types like MaxDiff will show each benefit along with the percentage and count of the times it was ranked as most appealing, least appealing, or not chosen. If you segment these results, maybe by department, a data table will be shown for each segment.

The ranking question will compute a weighted calculation score. Benefits ranked first are given a higher value or "weight." The score, computed for each benefit, is the sum of all the weighted values. The data table will also include a distribution of how each benefit was ranked.
