Upcoming Webinar! – Learning to “Nudge” – Avoiding Resistance in Surveys

Please join OrgVitality’s Dr. Scott Brooks for the next session in our 2014 complimentary webinar series!


Learning to “Nudge” – Avoiding Resistance in Surveys

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014  at 12:30 PM EDT, 9:30 AM PST

BY: Scott Brooks, Ph.D.

Your employee survey is well-designed and executed.  And yet… the impact is not what it could be.  Follow-through with meaningful action is moderate at best.  Executives may lose focus.  And it’s harder than it should be just to get people to take the survey in the first place.

But there is hope. Most employees want to do a good job.  Front line workers up through top executives want to improve their own and their organization’s performance.

This webinar is about the little things that help people to live up to their own good intentions – the “nudges” that are easy to implement, grounded in recent advances in behavioral science, and collectively can make a big difference in the impact of your survey program.

Many examples of proven nudges will be shared, including:

  • What is the best way to use a little social pressure to improve survey response rates?
  • How can you quickly frame open-ended comments to generate more useful suggestions?
  • How can you prime managers to increase the gusto with which they act on survey results?

You will learn in this webinar:

  1. Characteristics of Nudges – what they are, when they are most useful, and how to design them;
  2. Practical examples of Nudges in all facets of employee surveys – where you need to increase survey participation, useful feedback, and action on results; and
  3. A checklist for using Nudges back home in your own work.

Learn how to Nudge!
