What are topic-based assessments?

Use a topic-based assessment to develop a deeper understanding of a specific organizational challenge that’s affecting employee engagement or productivity. Before or after running your Insights engagement survey, you may need a deeper look into how your employees are doing with specific topics such as burnout, diversity & inclusion, and working from home. These assessments are sent to all employees in the organization as a way to gather more insight.

How are topic-based assessments different from Emplify's engagement assessment?

Topic-based assessments are shorter in length (approximately 20 questions or less) and focused on a specific area that may be affecting employee engagement. Whereas, the Emplify engagement assessment is designed to measure engagement on a broad number of dimensions (17 to be exact!).

How does it work?

1. Add and schedule the assessment from your Journey timeline

The Engagement Admin for your organization can add the assessment by selecting the Add Event button from the Journey timeline.

Select the engagement cycle where you want to add the assessment, select the topic-based assessment type, then select the topic you want to use. Click Add Event to add the assessment to your timeline.

The Engagement Admin can then schedule the launch date for the assessment.

2. Update employee data to prepare for the assessment.

The assessment is sent to all employees in your organization. You can make updates to the employee list in the Settings > Employees section of the Insights dashboard or attach a spreadsheet for our team to import. If you have questions, contact our support team at help@emplify.com.

3. On the assessment launch day, employees will receive invitations to take the assessment via email or SMS.

The assessment will be open for five business days. Employees that have not responded will get reminders each day.

4. Once the assessment has closed, responses will be available on the timeline for your organization.

Leaders will have access to results for the same groups as the engagement assessment.

5. Review results and read the feedback employees shared.

Results can be filtered to drill down into specific segments. No results will be shown for any segments with fewer than five responses.
