You’ve done the hard work – you created, revised, tested and sent a terrific survey.
The results came in quickly and in great numbers.
You put together the data, looked at it and found that it’s high-quality, insightful and actionable.
The key word here is actionable because now that you’ve got the data, it’s time to do something with it. In this article, we look at how to share survey reports across your organization, so you can turn your data into action.
Allow Survey Access
For many businesses, it’s advantageous to have multiple users in your survey platform.
For example, Survey Town collects your survey responses and provides you with graphs and reports of your data.
Not only can you see the number of responses and view the aggregated statistics in charts, but your team can view them as well.
Allowing multi-users makes it easy for your team to manage and analyze your survey results, ultimately collaborating and deciding on action.
The bonus in Survey Town is that you can assign permissions on a per user basis. This means your team may have access to one survey but not another.
Share a Web Link
One of the easiest, most straightforward ways to share your survey results is to share a web link throughout your organization.
For example, you might send an email with a summary of your survey results exported into a spreadsheet and include a link to the data export of your survey.
This allows your employees access to the survey results and your analysis of it without giving them backend access to your survey.
Create a Presentation
Another way to share survey reports across your organization is through a presentation that you do in-person.
You can export your survey results into a presentation-ready format for presenting to your core team.
By creating an offline copy of your data, you can insert it into a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation, so you can share the results to your team members.
This allows you to meet together, discuss the results in person and then brainstorm ways to take action on the data. When you provide data that is easy to read, it’s a great way to start the conversation with your employees and strategize using the data.
Now that you know how to share survey results, let’s look at why you should.
Why Share Survey Results?
One of the most important reasons you should share your survey results is because it makes you and your staff accountable to the data. It begins the conversation and encourages your staff to take action.
Another reason to share your results is education. With the data in front of them, your staff can begin an open and honest evaluation of your processes and how they affect your customers.
You and your staff can look at customer engagement and really understand how your customers view your company.
When you make the results available to your staff, you help them see the overall big picture. Everyone can begin to see and understand where your company excels and where there’s an opportunity for exploration and change.
Sharing survey results ultimately enlists buy-in from your employees and gives them a reason to improve. Your staff will feel more loyal to your brand as they all work together to change for the better.
It’s a good idea to share survey results because it opens up an avenue for a culture of continued improvement as your staff works to improve their survey data.
With several avenues available to you, you’re sure to find a way to share survey results across your organization that spurs conversation and change.
