Lifecycle surveys

What are lifecycle surveys?

Lifecycle surveys help leaders to gain a better understanding of the employee journey within their organisation at various stages. By capturing real-time feedback during pivotal moments like onboarding and when employees are exiting the business, organisations can identify areas of concern and opportunities for improvement, helping to develop a more robust engagement and retention strategy.

What lifecycle surveys can give feedback on

By collecting feedback on key moments, employee lifecycle surveys empower organisations to make data-driven decisions that improve the overall employee experience, boost engagement, and enhance retention rates. Some examples of what lifecycle surveys can give feedback on include:

  • The recruitment process
  • How settled employees feel within their team
  • Whether employees have the appropriate resources to do their job
  • Whether they’d recommend your organisation as a great place to work
  • Why employees decided to leave your organisation
  • What the organisation could have done differently
  • Whether your employees felt valued

“Onboarding and exit surveys have proven to be a valuable resource, enabling us to gather insights from employees at different touch points of the employee lifecycle. The most notable outcome has been the reassessment of our onboarding process, with a particular focus on new hires located outside of our head office in London. The feedback received has been instrumental in identifying areas for improvement.”
