Employees being the pillar of every business need to be taken care of in a special way. Undertaking studies that will allow them to communicate freely is a significant step in giving them a voice. Most times the survey only reflects on the work being done forgetting to ask about their salaries, allowances, insurance, etc. The employee benefits survey is the way to go to allow the employees open up about matters concerning their welfares and respond to them. Even though you may not offer the response that they need, it is still happy to call them together and chart the way forward together.
