The Gallup Q12 Employee Engagement Questionnaire

This measure is for adultsThis is a priced measure

This Questionnaire was designed by Gallup researchers to help employers assess their employees' level of engagement. As indicated by the PERMA model (Seligman, date), engagement is a primary factor in an individual’s overall wellbeing. Research has found employee engagement, as measured by this survey, leads to less turnover, lower absenteeism, and higher employee productivity. The Q12 Employee Engagement Questionnaire has 12 questions scored on a 5-point Likert scale. Questions range from “In the last seven days, have you received recognition or praise for doing good work?” to “Does the mission/purpose of your company make you feel your job is important?” (SHRM, 2010).  This instrument is available in over 30 languages and requires a purchase for use. This online calculator can help you estimate your school’s cost.
