Employee Interest Surveys

A valuable tool for wellness committees! Surveys introduce employees to worksite wellness, solicite their involvement and approval, and overall play a big role in helping to launch a successful wellness program.

Use our sample surveys as a starting point for polling your co-workers. Adapt and revise the questions to best fit your needs.

Once you get your survey questions finalized and survey dates set, you'll need to promote the survey well enough to assure a good response. (Consider these guidelines for response rates: Surveys at worksites with between 40 and 100 employees should have at least 25 responses and aim for 50-75% of all employees. At sites with 100-200 employees aim for 35-50% as your minimum.)
