Uncover valuable insights from moments that matter across the employee lifecycle.

Know the moments that matter. All the time.

Lifecycle surveys are used to understand your employees’ experience as they move through the employee journey, such as their orientation and onboarding, navigating organizational change, departure, and more. This insight allows leaders to design a better experience for others earlier in the employee journey, to improve engagement at later stages and get ahead of issues such as unwanted turnover.

  • “Our listening program has gone through the roof since working with Perceptyx. We've gone live with career cycle surveys for our newest employees, exit surveys, and pulse surveys that are topic specific. So really eliciting all the feedback we can to make sure that we understand what's going on with our workforce, and that allows us to adapt and change as quickly as things are adapting and changing for our employees.”

    Conrad Kresge, Employee Experience & Insights Manager, Norton Healthcare
  • “We were already using Perceptyx for the annual survey, again, we were running all of these other surveys. We had a different tool for every single one, and we were constantly being asked to link all this together. So how do we link our onboarding? How do we link that to our survey data, to the exit data? It was difficult, at best. So, we needed someone to have one platform to link all this together.”

    Dan Fiedler, Director Employee Engagement, Comcast
  • “One of the reasons that we really appreciate the Perceptyx platform is that it gives us the opportunity to have a more robust listening strategy. Now we don't need to listen only one time a year during the big engagement survey, but we have the opportunity to do so at more regular intervals and to deploy surveys throughout the career journey, including from the periods of onboarding to even exit surveys.”
