How to Measure Morale

Is it possible to measure happiness? That’s up for debate. But our HR experts know that a little data can go a long way. Regular employee satisfaction surveys are key.

With a combination of multiple choice questions and open-ended questions, these surveys allow management teams to understand what’s working and not working for their employees.
