Diagnosis: Creating and Administering a Cultural Health Survey


The first step toward a healthy workplace culture is diagnosis, which can be done by conducting a Cultural Health Survey. I am not going to walk you through exactly how to create your own Cultural Health Survey because there are so many different, practical ways that it can work. You could send a text message or an email with the right questions. You could use a form like Google Surveys, Survey Monkey, or WuFoo. You could do a Facebook poll if that’s the way that is easiest for you to communicate with your people. However, an anonymous survey is always going to get you better information than one that requires employees to identify themselves with their answers.

I offer a short sample of a cultural health survey here.

We often spend a lot of time wanting our communications to look good, but that makes no difference if you don’t know what information you are looking for and what information you don’t want to know.
