In Happyforce we have two different ways to ask your employees questions. These are through Surveys and Check-in's. In this brief article, we explain the difference of these two and when to use which.


The survey functionality complements the Happyforce Scores and the Happiness Index, as it allows you to go dig deeper into other key aspects that arise in these other measurements. Surveys allow you to:

  1. Understand how employees experience a specific moment in the organization: such as COVID-19, adapting to remote working...

  2. Diving deeper into topics that you already measure in Happyforce through the Happiness Index or the Scores: such as Stress, leadership, Autonomy ...

  3. Measuring employee experience: Understand the detail by asking your employees about their onboarding in the organization, training, departure time ...

To help with this, you can choose from our catalog of pre-made surveys that have been backed up by literature from experts, and studies on employee engagement.


Formerly known as the "Questions" section, check-ins serve to ask employees specific questions about one specific occurrence or topic. The check-ins help you lead the conversation in the feedback section and obtain real-time data without the need to create a survey or activate a score.
