The survey of 800 respondents by Opinion Research found workers are positively affected when their ideas spur some action by their employer to make a change, according to a news release. Employees at mid-sized companies are most likely (90%) to view employee surveys in a positive light.
Financial services companies who conduct the surveys are most likely to implement the findings (75%), compared with 35% of non-profits and 45% of manufacturing firms.
On a regional basis, companies in non-metro areas are far more likely to conduct employee surveys. Companies in the more densely populated areas such as the Northeast are least likely (43%) to implement results.
