I’ve got 40 employees and I’m not sure how they feel about work, should I run a survey?

40 people is a lovely size to be – I can remember that time in my last business very fondly.

To be honest I think at that size there are better things than surveys. Communication should be quite fluid at that size and you can just about get everyone in a room and have a chat – or maybe a few groups of 10. But if you feel that people wouldn’t be free enough to speak up and talk, then sure run a survey, but I’d hope with just a few handfuls of staff you could just use good conversation.
