Sample Employee Survey Questions

A typical employee survey questionnaire covers topics like the examples listed below. Comprehensive questionnaires usually include about 50-60 rating questions (e.g. 5-point rating scale) as well as a few short-answer questions that ask for employee opinions and perspectives. 

An employee survey template that can be customized may be beneficial for some organizations, but it is important to start with a standard
employee survey questionnaire and to maintain the statistical integrity of that questionnaire.

Custom survey questions that are added to an existing survey template cannot be statistically validated or benchmarked, so it is difficult to know what the results are really measuring.
