Annual employee surveys to listen and find out what your team wants

Annual employee surveys to listen and find out what your team wants

For achieving great results we needed to create a motivation strategy to maintain the spirit of enthusiasm among employees. Beach Retreats each year produces a staff survey to monitor trends within the work place, find out how employees view the company, to see if they are interested in the growth of the company and more importantly ask them what they want and how we can improve. Our 2018 staff survey resulted in the following company changes:

• Recognition of long service by increasing the number of annual holiday days
• Office environment change – Beach Retreats moved to new offices and brought the team together under one roof. This improved moral and communication between employees
• New uniforms
• Annual business performance based bonus scheme
• Staff discounts
• Self-development opportunities, e.g. courses
• External group activities including quiz nights and beach/games days

All of the above has helped improve motivation within the team and achieved the continuous growth of Beach Retreats.
