Survey tool
Trend surveys are reoccuring versions of a
General Survey
. They can be useful to see how working conditions change over time.


  1. Consider how often you will send the survey, depending on your research objectives
  2. Shorter surveys, particularly with closed-ended questions can be sent more often, while longer surveys should be shared infrequently so as not to fatigue research participants.

  3. Don't make any substantial changes to the question you want to track, as it will affect the responses.
  4. Compare the outcomes from the surveys over time.
