Take the Employee Pulse Survey Today
You Matter to Us. What Matters to You? Tell us by taking BWH’s employee pulse survey. The anonymous eight-question survey will take two to three minutes to complete. Human Resources is committed to sharing the results and quickly identifying areas for improvement in order to make BWH an even better place to work. After you complete the survey, you will be taken to a new page to enter into a raffle if you wish. Information entered for the raffle will not be tied in any way to the survey that you completed. Contact Ellen Gilmore at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need paper surveys for your department. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to take the survey.
