we may not be able to offer technical assistance if the invitations
are not received to the personal accounts.
can I get Access Codes?
Access codes are
requested as part of the Email Upload Portal, sent after registration
I request Access Codes for all of my employees?
No. In order to
use Access Codes at least 70% of your employee population will need
to have an email address. In order to maintain the integrity of the
survey process we cannot supply access codes for more than 30% of your
employee population. (Example: If your company has 100 employees, and
70 employees have email addresses, the remaining 30 employees could
use access codes to complete the survey.)
are the codes distributed?
A few days
before the survey begins, the survey coordinator will receive a spreadsheet
containing Access Codes and a login instructions letter with the survey
website. The survey coordinator will then assign each individual a unique
access code and prepare the login instruction letter for distribution.
Suggested distribution methods are listed below:
- Send through
- Send with
company paychecks (If timing fits with survey start and deadline)
- Mail the
access codes to the employees’ homes
- Have supervisors
or survey coordinator hand-deliver an access code to each employee
can only be used one time and employees will need access to a private
computer workstation to complete the survey online. The distribution
of access codes is the responsibility of the survey coordinator. Best
Companies Group requires each company to submit a checklist of its selection
and distribution method of access codes.
