An overview of the questions and factors in our Engagement survey template

Who is this guide for?

Account Admins, Survey Admins, Survey Creators

Culture Amp's standard Employee Engagement Survey template contains 57 questions and takes most people just under 10 minutes to complete.

It measures employee engagement in detail and assesses a broad range of contributing factors such as Leadership, Learning and Development as well as some more unique contributing factors such as Work & Life Blend, Social Responsibility and Feedback & Recognition.

If 57 questions sounds too long, we also have an 20 question version of this survey, called the Quick Engagement Survey. You can also edit the template to remove questions. If you want to dig deeper into the quick engagement survey, check out our article, 20 employee engagement survey questions every company should ask, for the science behind these questions and what the benchmark scores mean for each.

💡 Tip: Feel free to download the questions in spreadsheet form for easy access.
