We are actively discussing whether to continue limiting participation in our annual engagement survey to employees who have > 90 days tenure. I would welcome hearing if this is a practice others follow, and why or why not.
One internal group sees this as the appropriate amount of time to form opinions about managers, leaders and teams. Their logic is that you need that much time before answering questions about the corporate culture.
Others see this as a limitation on getting the complete picture of our employees’ engagement. Yes, newer employees might have rosier beliefs or less complete perspectives than others with more tenure; that’s okay and we should include their perspectives when planning actions.
Where do you and your company land on this decision?
