Get Started with Pulse Surveys

Employee engagement surveys enable teams to collect employee feedback at scale, empowering them with the right data. Feedback at scale is key, because it represents the collective voices of your employee base, rather than the loudest voices of a few people.

Cooleaf offers a unique way to listen and act with anonymous pulse surveying by:

  • Meeting your team where they're already engaging, minimizing multi-platform fatigue and re-invigorating existing company initiatives within your account
  • Utilizing existing team structures with the ability to directly act upon those same team efforts and goals within the account, creating a closed loop for driving success
  • Offering the ability to incentivize data collection with rewards points
Tip: Always start with a clear surveying strategy, establishing purpose, cadence, and a results action timeline.

How to Create a Survey

Creating surveys requires admin level account status.

  1. Navigate to the blue icon in the bottom left hand corner of your screen, and select “Manager Panel”
  2. To access the Surveys portion of the Manager Panel, click the survey icon on the upper left-hand side of your screen,
  3. Click on "Create New" to create your survey
  • Question types include Single Choice, Checkboxes, or Short Answer
  • Mark any required answers
  • Easily add answer options or additional questions
Tip: Aim to keep pulse surveys between 3-7 questions. Pair action-oriented questions ("I have seen positive changes since XYZ") with Likert scale responses ("Strongly Agree, Agree, ..."). Capture qualitative data with a follow-up open-ended question.
  1. Target your survey to your entire organization, a specific team within your account, or select individuals within your account.
  • Select your date range (start and end date of survey)
  • Opt to incentivize participation by adding points for survey completion
  • Add any instructions (will be included in the invitation email)
Clearly explain what will be measured, what the survey will allow the company to do, and what the participant can expect in the way of confidentiality and action.

Survey Completion

Survey recipients will receive a notification by email, as well as see a survey icon on the left navigation bar in their web platform.

The survey easily pops up within the main page of the account.

Once completed, any points are immediately issued to the participant.

All survey responses are completed anonymously, within the Cooleaf platform, to protect employees' privacy and confidentiality. In fact, there is no admin level in the Cooleaf platform that would give anyone access to see the exact responses from one individual. Employee response answers are only used for research purposes and will be reported in a way that does not allow individual responses to be identified.

Marketing Your Survey

Engaging your employees in surveys is essential for gathering valuable insights and enhancing your workplace. To boost participation and make sure your surveys reach every corner of your organization, consider the following marketing strategies:

  1. Announcement Post on the Main Feed

Create a buzz around your survey by crafting a compelling announcement post on your main feed. Make it informative, engaging, and friendly to encourage employees to participate. Here's how:

  • Catchy Headline: Start with an attention-grabbing headline that piques curiosity.
  • Clear Call to Action: Clearly state the purpose of the survey and what you want employees to do.
  • Survey Link: Include a direct link to the survey to make it easy for employees to access.
  • Benefits Highlight: Mention any rewards, incentives, or benefits of taking the survey.
  • Visual Appeal: Incorporate eye-catching graphics or images to make the post visually appealing.

Example: "🌟 Share Your Voice, Shape Our Future! 🌟 Take our Employee Survey now and help us create an even better workplace! Your feedback matters. [Survey Link]"
