23 questions to ask your team and colleagues to understand their perspectives.

When it comes to your team, it’s important to frequently check in and measure over time how your employees perceive your company culture, values, access to resources, advancement outlook and more. Oftentimes, this information is not collected until it’s too late, and this ultimately wastes organizations millions every year on losing incredible talent and having to re-staff or re-hire. When looking for the easiest and most convenient ways to source this information, a straightforward approach would be to send a survey. It’s lightweight, scalable and ultimately helps you either anonymously or otherwise capture a pulse on your team dynamics.
