I Have a Best Friend at Work!

The annual employee engagement survey consists of 12 questions—called the Q12—that have been identified by Gallup to be the 12 core elements that best predict employee and workgroup performance, and ultimately link to key business outcomes.

Q10 is “I have a best friend at work.What does this mean?

  • Do you feel you have one or more team members whom you can depend on and trust?
  • Are there team members within our organization that have values similar to yours?
  • How do relationships within the team help you do your job better?

Watch a video with Robert Jewell and Dianne McCarthy on the Q10 here. To learn more about the Q12, click here.

Our goal is 100 percent!
