Deloitte’s Best Company to Work for Survey, also known as the Best Company Survey, which measures employee experience, has in the past year undergone a rejuvenation, incorporating smart analytics coupled with best practice research methodologies to deliver a diagnostic tool for organisation to measure year-on-year attributes, which influence employee engagement and attraction to an organisation.
The key objective of the best company survey is to enable an organisation to identify what attracts and motivates individuals within the workplace and how this impacts on productivity or engagement levels. The survey output provides an organisation with the key elements of how employees experience the culture of organisation and how this impacts or influences employees.
