This can, for example, be for all departments in the organization and initiated at predetermined times of the year. They can also be deployed as needed if individual departments or the entire organization need follow-up surveys.
Some departments or areas may also carry out more pulse surveys during periods than the rest of the organization. For example, if parts of the organization have a special focus area, or parts of the organization are more used to working with frequent surveys.
At Rambøll, we distinguish between Team Pulse and Organization Pulse:
Organization Pulse is a frequent survey of employee wellbeing, engagement and other strategic areas across the entire organization. The insights are therefore relevant to HR, senior management and the individual department manager. Organization Pulse is typically used as part of a larger survey strategy, where survey frequency is determined in advance for the entire organization.
Team Pulse is a survey in a specific unit, department or area of the organization. Focus on topics that the unit itself has the opportunity to influence or follow up on previous results and action plans. Team Pulse typically requires less planning, as the survey concerns fewer employees and does not involve initiatives for the entire organization. Therefore, the survey can also be used more spontaneously and as needed.
