Understanding smart surveys and the algorithm

Get deeper knowledge of the survey questions and the algorithm of these

Eletive’s standard engagement questionnaire consists of: 

  • 11 engagement drivers
  • 46 driver questions 

The 46 questions fit into 11 engagement drivers. The selection of drivers and questions is based on scientific research and proven theories, covering the important parts of well-being and engagement. The question battery has proven reliability and validity. The employee feedback that you receive in Eletive is designed to give you a clear view of data on all drivers.

The question distribution 

When not using a pulse frequency, the employees will be targeted with all questions at once. When using a pulse frequency, the algorithm will distribute different questions between the employees. The question algorithm is designed to gather as much feedback on the aspects of your organization on the survey occasion. The question rotation algorithm is influenced by several aspects, for example: 

  • The time since the question was last answered by an employee. The longer it was, the higher probability of receiving that question.
  • If an employee would give a remarkable low score to a question. For example, an employee answers 1 out of 5 on a question related to “Relationship with manager”. Eletive will then follow up with a different question within “Relationship with manager” on the next survey occasion to dig deeper and learn more. This ensures that Eletive asks your employees the right questions at the right time and enables your managers to get the most crucial data as soon as possible. The same question will not be asked repeatedly on every survey occasion. The tool will try to find the cause of the potential issue and will, therefore, work through aligned questions.

Driver coverage 

By covering all drivers as soon as possible, you will not miss important issues that may affect the engagement. You will quickly see trends to learn if you are on the right path or if you should do any corrections to move in the right direction. When drivers are covered, you will see which drivers are your strengths and priorities. These insights are an important key to take meaningful actions based on the survey outcome. The pulse frequencies enable you to quickly get high-quality reports based on feedback.
