In designing the items included in the Q 12 , researchers took into account that, from an actionability standpoint, there are two broad categories of employee survey items: those that are reflective measures of attitudinal outcomes (satisfaction, loyalty, pride, customer service perceptions and intent to stay with the company) and those that are formative measures of actionable issues that drive these outcomes. The Q 12 measures the actionable issues for management — those predictive of attitudinal outcomes such as satisfaction, loyalty, pride and so on. On Gallup’s standard Q 12 instrument, after an overall satisfaction item are 12 items measuring issues we have found to be actionable (changeable) at the supervisor or manager level — items measuring perceptions of elements of the work situation such as role clarity, resources, fit between abilities and requirements, receiving feedback, and feeling appreciated. The Q 12 is a formative measure of “engagement conditions,” each of which is a contributor to engagement through the measure of its causes. The Q 12 statements are: Q00. Overall Satisfaction) On a 5-point scale, where “5” is extremely satisfied and “1” is extremely dissatisfied, how satisfied are you with (your company) as a place to work? Q01.
