Organisations need employee feedback in order to inform their internal decisions. In particular, there may be specific employee survey feedback on an element of reward (e.g. overtime rates) or in a particular area that may explain why the organisation is struggling to recruit or retain employees in certain roles.

Employee Research to help your organisation

Knowing what your people think about their work and their employer is essential for understanding and determining which reward policies will be the most effective.

Using honest employee research data correctly can help you to improve employee engagement levels, improve staff recognition as a good employer and support you in attracting the right talent.

Paydata provides a bespoke employee research service that helps your organisation understand your employee’s views and perceptions. These include staff satisfaction surveys and employee motivation benchmarking. As an independent third party, your people are encouraged to provide frank, honest and complete feedback on an anonymous basis, as we reassure them that their views will be treated with the strictest confidentiality.

Paydata's approach to Employee Research

Our team’s practical HR and Reward experience means we are well-equipped to provide the following types of employee research, all tailored to suit your business needs:


Structured interviews

Invaluable for understanding the full range of complex business, strategy and culture issues. For example, we are often asked to meet members of senior executive teams to develop a reward strategy that is aligned to the organisation's overall objectives and culture.


Focus groups and workshops

This type of research helps you gain the views of a wider range of employees. We can facilitate employee, manager and trade union groups to gain insights into concerns, or test and refine new developments/management initiatives.


Employee opinion surveys

From annual staff surveys covering life at work, to shorter/ad hoc ‘pulse checks’ on hot topics such as new pay schemes, we can help you to listen to your people as a one-off or through regular dialogue. You can choose from online, paper-based or email-based surveys.
