Give your employees a voice using the
b-Heard Employee Engagement Survey

If you are looking to improve engagement levels in your business and, in doing so, create stronger teams, effective managers and a happier working life, then you need to start with a survey.

Understanding how your employees are thinking and feeling sits at the very heart of your engagement journey. Their feedback will drive your decisions, give you areas of focus and help you put plans in place to make improvement happen. But it’s not just knowing what questions to ask; it’s knowing how to ask them.

Our b-Heard survey is powered by our academically rigorous methodology, developed alongside academics the University of Plymouth and the Department of Trade and Industry, and is proven to get to the heart of what people want and expect from their working lives.

This unique system looks for patterns, connections and correlations between employee responses, taking you beyond just identifying how your employees feel – it uncovers why they feel that way. It’s been tested on millions of UK employees and is continually reviewed.

Asking the right questions

The b-Heard survey allows you to gain honest and insightful feedback by asking your employees to submit their responses both confidentially and securely – something crucial for gaining the maximum response rates.

The survey invites your employees to respond to statements about their wellbeing, pay and benefits, personal growth, team, the leadership and much more.

With a minimum of 24 'core' statements, you can choose to have up to 70 to use within your survey, selecting from a bank of over 120 different options to make it bespoke to your organisation.

Responses are recorded on a seven-point scale that allows for more granularity in the data we receive compared to a simple agree/disagree response scale or a five-point scale. We headcount adjust each statement to remove the influence of headcount on the score. This, combined with our unique 8 factor model, gives you a structured and accurate insight into how your employees feel. We then combine these scores to give your organisation a Best Companies Index (BCI) – our exclusive and academically robust measure of engagement.
