What is the recommended time frame for administering the Q12 survey?

The minimum amount of time is one week, but Gallup research shows that two weeks is the ideal amount of time to allow employees to complete the Gallup Q12 survey. This time frame allows you to:

  • communicate the importance of the survey to employees
  • invite employees to complete the survey
  • adjust the communication strategy based on participation rates, employees' schedules, etc.
