Create the strategic frame The survey communicates what is important to an organization. What is asked and responded to creates a social contract. The process can tell employees you care about their issues and that you are willing to do something about these issues (Church & Oliver, 2006). The survey then sets the limits or boundaries for a creative and innovative discussion around continual improvement.
