CLASSIC VERSION – How do I create a social barometer on Eval&GO?

A social barometer is a questionnaire used, particularly in Human Resources, to measure employees’ perceptions, well-being at work, and the social climate. It allows you to inquire about a specific theme or multiple themes, identify areas of risk and areas for improvement, prevent and correct any dysfunction, and detect and address potential psychosocial risks.

To measure the work climate, you can also create other questionnaires such as a psychosocial risk questionnaire, a Quality of Work Life (QWL) questionnaire, a diagnostic, etc.

  1. Create Your Questionnaire First, create your questionnaire by clicking on “New questionnaire.” The social barometer is an anonymous questionnaire. You can insert an introduction page from the “Edit” module, under the “Options” tab, and “Intro/End” to inform your respondents of the questionnaire’s objective and its complete anonymity. This will help the respondent feel completely confident in answering all questions honestly. You can then add your questions. We recommend using evaluation questions that allow you to obtain averages (scale, slider, smileys, and stars) and maintaining the same question type throughout the questionnaire. This will enable you to quickly identify strengths, weaknesses, and make comparisons between different evaluated criteria. The smileys question provides an average on a 3-point scale, while stars provide an average on a 5-point scale. In the case of scale and slider questions, you define your own rating scale (e.g., if you set the minimum to 0 and the maximum to 10, you will obtain an average on a scale of 10). We recommend creating a clear questionnaire with precise question labels that do not confuse the respondent or influence their answers.

  2. Define Groups (Using Our “Grouping” Feature) One of the peculiarities of the social barometer is that it allows you to evaluate one or more themes (such as motivation, stress, hierarchy relationships, autonomy, working conditions, etc.). Our “Grouping” feature (available with a PRO+ account) allows you to group questions related to the same theme for analysis. It deepens the analysis of this group of questions. By grouping questions, you can generate tables and/or charts based on this group. To place a question in a group:
  • Click on the green “Group” icon to the right of the question.
  • If you haven’t created a group yet, enter a name in the “Add a new group” field.
  • If you’ve already created groups, select the group where you want to place your question using the dropdown menu.
  • Click “OK.” The blue “Configure” icon will appear on the right side of each question.
  1. Configure a Dynamic Report (Optional) If you want respondents to see their responses and/or results at the end of the questionnaire, you can configure a dynamic report. This report appears when the respondent completes the questionnaire and clicks on the “FINISH” button. It includes the respondent’s responses. In this report, you can, for example:
  • Display the respondent’s result as a radar chart.
  • Show a summary of their responses.
  • Configure the display of different texts based on the respondent’s result and profile (conditional report).
  • Include the general report (of all respondents). You can also choose to display the global report containing all responses (not just those of the respondent).
  1. Publish Your Anonymous Questionnaire Since the social barometer is an anonymous questionnaire, Eval&GO offers various anonymous publication methods:
  • The anonymous questionnaire link found in the “Publish” module.
  • The QR code.
  • Integration of the questionnaire on your website (under the “Embed” tab).
  1. Analyze Your Results In the “Results” module of your questionnaire, create a manual report from scratch by clicking on “Add a report.” You can add tables, charts, and/or texts to analyze your results. For example, you can:
  • Display individual results (e.g., the result of each group or a breakdown of responses for each respondent).
  • Show the average obtained on different question groups. For instance, you can display a radar chart.
  • Display the average obtained by all respondents.
  • Show the details of responses from all your respondents.
