Employee Survey Respondents
Individual respondents and answers are treated as confidential and used only for research purposes unless expressly requested otherwise. Survey participation is voluntary and individuals may choose, without consequence, to take part.
People Essentials Limited is committed to maintaining the anonymity of survey users. When you register for a Survey, we need only your email address which your employer provides.
We use the email address provided to send your invitation to take part in the survey, issue reminders and for other similar purposes related to the Survey. We will not email you for any other reason.
Our survey platform and supporting systems and services are designed with privacy in mind. Data is encrypted for the purposes of transfer and storage and securely stored on severs based in the EU.
Only People Essentials have access to surveys completed online. If you have received a hard copy of the survey then you will be asked to send your completed survey back to People Essentials direct.
Your responses are collated and reported back in an aggregate format. People Essentials comply with MRS Guidelines on Employee Research and as such only analyse and report results where there are 10 or more respondents. People Essentials do not identify or feedback information on non-respondents.
All responses are also anonymised – while the survey is live we can connect your responses with your email address if required to change or remove your responses. Once the survey has ended your responses are anonymised, your email address is removed and deleted and can no longer be linked to your responses.
We will share your comments, but we don’t tell anyone who wrote them – all comments are reported anonymously. If you wish to remain anonymous, you must ensure you do not provide information to enable anyone to identify you with any certainty. If you choose to reveal your identity in your comments you will be identifiable only in that comment, no other responses or comments are linked.
Respondents assume all risks and consequences of revealing their identity.
