Work surveys are pointless

You ever work at a place that does the old annual survey deal, reports the results three months later, there’s maybe 1 day where people discuss the results, and then no one thinks about it for 13 months until there’s another “annual” survey?

Of course you have. We’ve all worked at those places because what I just described is normative.
