Sarbanes Oxley
Sarbanes-Oxley Surveys

Complying with Sarbanes-Oxley requirements is confusing. There are a number of issues companies must contend with to satisfy the SOX 404 standards. One of the requirements is an assessment of employees to gauge the operational effectiveness of the company's internal controls.

We've developed a SOX-compliant questionnaire to help organizations meet this requirement. Created by experienced research professionals, our questionnaire measures employee perceptions in a number of critical areas suggested by Sarbanes-Oxley:

  • Management Objectivity
  • The Company's Ethical Values
  • Company's Code of Conduct
  • Ethical Behavior
  • Job Information
  • Company Resources
  • Performance Appraisals
  • Software

In addition to assisting you with your Sarbanes-Oxley needs, adding a few additional sections to the survey (at no additional cost) will enable you to measure employee satisfaction in a number of area, possibly leading to increased employee satisfaction and productivity if you act upon the survey findings. Additional sections to consider adding include:

  • Leadership and Planning
  • Corporate Culture
  • Communications
  • Career Development
  • Employees Role
  • Recognition and Rewards
  • Teamwork and Cooperation
  • Working Conditions
  • Immediate Supervisor
  • Training
  • Benefits

You also benefit from comparisons against our extensive normative database.

Several times a week we review the list of people who have downloaded the sample questionnaire. We then invite those who appear to have completely and honestly entered the information below to download a representative sample report. (We don't invite people who put down things like "Mr. asdfjklm of Anywhere Street!").

You can download a sample copy of the questionnaire by entering the requested information below. You will then be sent to a page with a link to our sample employee satisfaction questionnaire. There is no charge to download it.

Please complete the below information in order to download the questionnaire.

The questionnaire is available in both Microsoft Word and Adobe formats.
