CVR's surveys are designed to capture data on employee attitudes
by work group and demographics. Each form is a simple, single-page
survey that is easy to administer and takes approximately
15 minutes to complete. To facilitate the survey process,
our standard survey form is divided into the following three
sections: survey group coding, demographics, and survey
Survey Group Coding
These codes are used to identify each separate work group
or survey group in the output reports. They are assigned
by the client and permit virtually unlimited flexibility
in the reporting of the data.
This section contains standard demographics, such as education,
length of service, and type of pay, to name a few, which
can be compared for the entire organization. If utilized,
they allow for a comprehensive and detailed comparison of
attitudes in the output reports.
The core statements of our standard Employee Attitude Survey
assess the overall Human Resources climate of your company,
as well as union vulnerability and problems with retention
and communication. Its 20 statements are designed to effectively
capture pertinent data on the following:
work group cooperation
confidence in management
rules and procedures
use of abilities
seeking outside job
pride in the organization
change in organization
overall satisfaction with work
fairness of pay
CVR's survey reports are designed to be self-contained and
self-explanatory, and they provide only pertinent data to
facilitate understanding and interpretation. The following
is a list of reports included with each survey.

For companies that have done a previous survey with CVR, comparative
survey reports are available in which the current survey results
are compared to prior survey results.
When our core survey statements are utilized, three standard
indexes are included with the reports. These indexes offer
a quick overview of attitudes for each survey group.
The Attitude Index is the average percent favorable response
for all 20 statements. It serves as an overview
of attitudes for that workgroup or survey group.
Backed by 35 years of research, the Industrial Relations
Index is the average percent favorable response for
six statements that help to predict union vulnerability.
The Retention Index is the average percent favorable response
for statements that assist in determining your
company's vulnerability to frequent turnover.
