Measuring the strength of a workplace can be summarized by knowing the answer to twelve questions. These twelve questions measure the core elements needed to attract, focus and retain the most talented employees according to Susan Shald, Gallup Recruiter who spoke at Brigham Young University Marriott School on October 12, 2011.
These twelve questions have been tested in organizations throughout the world by the Gallup organization. These have been refined and perfected to the point where you can quickly pinpoint areas of concern once you tally the answers given by your employees.
Here are the twelve questions:
- Do I know what is expected of me at work?
- Do I have the right materials and equipment I need to do my work right?
- At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?
- In the last seven days, have I received recognition or praise for doing good work?
- Does my supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about me as a person?
- Is there someone at work who encourages my development?
- At work, do my opinions seem to count?
- Does the mission/purpose of my company make me feel my job is important?
- Are my co-workers committed to doing quality work?
- 10.Do I have a best friend at work?
- 11.In the last six months, has someone at work talked to me about my progress?
- 12.This last year, have I had opportunities at work to learn and grow?
