BEST EMPLOYERS STUDY

Introduction
Hewitt and its partners are sponsoring a major study to identify the Best Employers in Poland and in
Central Eastern Europe. Your organization has confirmed interest in participating in this study and is
a candidate for the Best Employers in Poland list, to be published in Spring 2008.
A critical part of the study will be the employee perspective on what makes companies exceptional
employers. Please answer this questionnaire based on your experience in your local organizations
operations. There are no right or wrong answers. Each organization has unique characteristics that
make it what it is. Please respond candidly to the questions.
This survey should only take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Your answers will be
treated with complete confidentiality. To ensure this confidentiality, Hewitt Associates, the
consulting firm coordinating the study, processes all responses. No one at your organization will
ever see individual responses, or any information calculated from less than 15 responses.
