About the work

Why the work is being done
NNL wish to purchase an employee engagement digital survey tool, which can be easily accessed by authorised users to collect ‘always on’ real time feedback, multiple choice data, and opinions of NNL employees. The tool must also incorporate built-in analysis software to enable management to interpret the survey responses, to include sentiment. The tool should be easily accessible from NNL hardware and not require any specific equipment other than an internet / cloud-based solution. The solution must comply with all GDPR legislation to offer total protection to all employee personal data.
The pulse survey tool needs to be available for all NNL employees to access, preferably without a requirement of second sign on and ideally available NNL mobile devices.
Problem to be solved
A intuitive system that can temperature test and engage with the 1000+ employees across NNL.
Who the users are and what they need to do
NNL workforce and site administrators will be using the pulse survey solution. The software requirements are;
• Must have the ability to run 'always on' surveys
• Must have the ability to run 'regular pulse’ surveys
• Must have the ability to run 'spot check' surveys
• Must provide a ‘quantitative’ method for measuring employee feeling and sentiment in a way that captures the strength of feeling and response
• Must have automated processing, analysis, reporting and presentation of pulse and spot survey results
• ‘Always on’ response data must be available in real time for review and analysis
• Surveys must be easy for all NNL employees to access, including those without an NNL device for remote working
• Surveys must be easy and straightforward for all NNL employees to complete, including those without an NNL device for remote working
• Must have the ability for all line managers to create local surveys, and view all data and results for their own teams

Questions asked by suppliers

1. How can I access the Software as a Service questionnaire?
IF YOU REQUIRE A COPY OF THE Questionnaire PLEASE E-MAIL at

Gillian.m.hale@uknnl.com
2. Could you confirm whether 1000 'users' means 'respondents'? If so could you estimate how many 'administrators' (i.e. survey authors, approvers, researchers, contributors) you envisage?
1000 'users' means 'survey respondents'
Initial 'administrators' - 6
In time the intention is to extend this to all line managers after 12-18 months – so approx. 250 administrators at this point
3. Is Office 365 used at NNL, please?
Yes we use office 365
4. Are you sure you mean Chromium?
Yes, we mean Chromium.
5. Are you looking for an 'off the shelf' product or are you open to a bespoke product? Do you have a preference?
We are open to suggestions and would not rule out a bespoke tool, it depends on what meets our specification.
6. Pulse is a limited metric; are you interested more extensive functionality that allows employees to report bullying, harassment, etc, and manage the investigation process thereof? This would show employees a level of consideration that is statistically proven to be sought after.
We’re only looking for an engagement tool.
7. How do I return the SaaS questionnaire?
Please return the completed questionnaire direct to gillian.m.hale@uknnl.com.
8. The Digital Marketplace portal has a limit of 100 words on each section, how do I include the 3 x case study examples of up to 500 words?
Please either use the space provided in the Digital Marketplace for your response (up to the 100 words), if you require additional content up to the maximum 500 wordcount, then send as an email attachment to gillian.m.hale@uknnl.com. Please add a comment in the relevant section to let me know an email has been sent.
