SurveyMonkey’s resources for the coronavirus crisis


Large portions of the workforce are working remotely, facing childcare needs and struggling with anxieties about their health, their families and the economy. School systems face unique logistical challenges as they attempt to implement distance learning programmes for students with variable needs and access to resources.

Now more than ever, it’s important for organisations to listen to the people they serve and find ways to help them cope with the new challenges they’re facing. That’s why we built new survey templates that are designed to help companies of all sizes communicate with their employees at scale.

Fundamentally, surveys are about remotely communicating with people at scale. That makes them an important tool for gathering opinions and feedback at a time when social distancing is the norm.
