Questions to include on your Employee onboarding feedback form

1. Employee Information

This section is used to gather basic information about the new employee.

  • What is your name?
  • What is your position?
  • What is your start date?
  • What department will you be working in?

2. Onboarding Process Feedback

This section is designed to understand the new employee's perspective on the onboarding process.

  • How would you rate your onboarding experience? (1- Very Poor, 2- Poor, 3- Average, 4- Good, 5- Excellent)
  • Was the information provided during onboarding clear and helpful? (Yes, No)
  • Please provide feedback on the quality of the onboarding materials/ resources provided.

The rating question provides a quick glance at how successful the onboarding process was. The second question helps understand if the information communicated during the process was effective or not. The textarea allows for more detailed feedback.

3. Training and Support

This section focuses on the training and support provided during the onboarding process.

  • Did you receive enough training to perform your job responsibilities? (Yes, No)
  • How would you rate the support from your manager/ team during the onboarding process? (1- Very Poor, 2- Poor, 3- Average, 4- Good, 5- Excellent)
  • Please provide any suggestions for improving the training and support provided during onboarding.

The feedback on training and support will help to identify any gaps or areas of improvement in the onboarding process.

4. Overall Satisfaction

This section measures the overall satisfaction of the new employee after the onboarding process.

  • How satisfied are you with the overall onboarding process? (1- Very Dissatisfied, 2- Dissatisfied, 3- Neutral, 4- Satisfied, 5- Very Satisfied)
  • Would you recommend any changes to the onboarding process? If yes, please specify.

The satisfaction question helps to evaluate the overall effectiveness and satisfaction of the onboarding process. The open-ended question allows the new employee to provide suggestions for improvement, providing valuable insights for the HR team.

Things to consider

  1. Simplicity - Keep your form as simple and straightforward as possible. Don't include unnecessary fields or complex jargon. The easier it is for employees to understand, the more likely they are to complete it.
  2. Clarity - Each question should be clear and to the point. If the employee has to spend time figuring out what you're asking, they may lose interest.
  3. Brevity - Consider the length of your form. Too many questions can be overwhelming and discourage completion. Stick to key questions that will give you the most valuable insights.
  4. Anonymity - If you wish to get honest and candid feedback, it's important to ensure the responses are anonymous. Transparency about this from the beginning can encourage more accurate responses.
  5. Accessibility - Make sure your form is accessible on multiple devices. Nowadays, people do everything on their phones, so it's important to have a mobile-friendly form.
  6. Feedback Opportunities - Include open-ended questions where employees can share their thoughts and suggestions. Detailed feedback can provide valuable insights for improving your onboarding process.
  7. Testing - Before launching the form, test it multiple times to ensure there are no glitches, errors, or confusing parts. This will contribute to a smooth user experience.
