Things to consider

  1. Simplicity - Keep the form as simple and straightforward as possible. Avoid complex questions that could confuse respondents and lead to inaccurate results.
  2. Anonymity - Guarantee anonymity to the respondents to encourage honest and unbiased responses. This can be crucial, especially in sensitive areas like workplace culture.
  3. Progress Bar - Include a progress bar to let respondents know how far they are from completing the survey. This can motivate them to complete the form.
  4. Mobile-Friendly Design - Ensure your form is mobile-friendly. Many users might prefer to fill out the form on their smartphones or tablets.
  5. Multiple Choice Questions - Use multiple-choice questions where possible to speed up the form completion process. However, ensure that the provided options are exhaustive and mutually exclusive.
  6. Open-Ended Questions - Include some open-ended questions to give respondents a chance to provide additional information that may not be covered by the fixed-answer questions.
  7. Validation - Implement form validation to prevent respondents from accidentally skipping questions or providing responses in an incorrect format.
