Frequently Asked Questions  

Is there any flexibility in the questions we use for the survey?

We have our own bank of survey questions as a starting point and can tailor them based on the focus of the areas you are exploring. We can also work with you to put together a custom survey. Custom surveys will require additional hours and fees.

What’s the difference between a Pulse Survey and a Comprehensive Survey?

A pulse survey is a quick check-in of 10 questions on where things stand. A comprehensive survey asks detailed and open-ended questions to allow you to see a range of insights across a broader number of topic areas. Our consultant can help you determine which is best.

What is the deliverable we can expect?

Final deliverables include a report with aggregate responses by question (both quantitative and qualitative) and an executive summary via a PowerPoint presentation delivered to key stakeholders. If focus groups or interviews are conducted, they will be included in the final deliverables.

Is the data collection confidential?

Yes, we don’t include the names of the responders/interviewees in our findings. However, there are some ways you may want to cut the data (i.e., by department) that can narrow down the results a bit. We always want to keep it as confidential and anonymous as we can, so it encourages the best responses.

How long does the process take?

Most surveys take up to 8 weeks, depending on your team’s schedule.

Will you conduct focus groups/interviews in-person or virtual?

Either. We can work with your preference and accommodate you virtually or in person. We may make some recommendations on what could work best, depending on the number of people involved and their locations.

What is the consultant’s background?

Our Exude Human Capital consultants have spent decades in the consulting space working with clients in many different industries, levels, and sizes of companies. They bring expertise and experience that allows them to share best practices with clients. Our consultants will work with you on the best ways to conduct the survey, some messaging recommendations, and what the next steps could be based on the results.

What types of companies will Exude support?

Any industry, including but not limited to professional services, social services, education, bio/pharma, technology, healthcare, hospitality, entertainment, communications, manufacturing, associations, finance, and construction. We are experienced across any industry in both for-profit and non-profit sectors in the US, regardless of size.
