Overview of the Engagement Assessment

The Engagement Assessment helps organizations understand the level of engagement within their workforce. The 6-minute survey consists of 55 questions and one optional, open response question. The questions focus on two things - the Emplify Score and Engagement Drivers. Employees are then given an opportunity to share an anonymous comment on an engagement driver based on their survey responses. The results from the survey help leaders identify the engagement strengths and weaknesses within their organization and teams. This produces trends over time of how engagement is progressing.

About the assessment

  • Send the Engagement Assessment to the entire organization. The assessment is designed to help organizations understand the engagement level of their entire workforce. Results are also displayed for employee segments to focus on areas of the organization that have strong engagement and areas that require action.

  • Follow our tested methodology. The questions in the assessment are intentionally worded to assess how engaged employees are. Because the statements have been developed to measure engagement, we do not allow these to be changed. Specific terms in the statements can be adjusted to reflect the terminology in your organization. Learn more about survey wording substitutions here.

  • Our system manages sending to employees. We will send a unique link to each employee via email and/or SMS (US only). We require unique contact information for each employee and we'll handle the rest of the process of inviting survey participants and sending reminders to participate.

  • Track employee engagement over time. We recommend surveying employees 2-4 times per year to evaluate which actions are working and which are not. Each survey cycle shows engagement score trends. Establishing a cadence upfront allows employee engagement to be part of business planning.


  • Responses are anonymous. We never show the name of an employee respondent and also only show results for groups with 5+ responses. This protects the responses of employees so no individual response can be inferred.

  • Participation is confidential. We do not share which employees did or did not participate in the survey. We want employees to trust the confidentiality of the survey so they are willing to participate in future surveys.

Response Rate and Reporting

  • Our Global Average Response rate is 82% when following our default recommend reminder cadence. This can vary depending on the accuracy and type of contact information, industry, internal promotion efforts, and of course employee perception of action over time.

  • Results are available immediately with a follow-up briefing. Results are available in the engagement dashboard when the survey closes. They are available to the Account Owner and other authorized users with total or partial results visibility. Your Executive Advisor will guide you through an executive summary of results on a live conference call typically within a week of survey close.
