Getting started with surveys

Employee Surveys in Plai allow you to set up recurring surveys and keep track of how engaged your team is - even if they're working remotely. Recurring surveys can help by showing changes over time, just like time-lapse photography.

With surveys, you can directly receive feedback, know how your employees feel, gauge their satisfaction, understand their views on your organization's efforts, and even get an idea about how they balance their work and personal life. Here's a short video overview about surveys in Plai:
