Please Note

*Each survey includes a 13th item that measures an employee’s overall satisfaction with their company as a place to work. We don't factor the results from that item into Q12 scoring. The results give leaders a quick look at employee satisfaction.

How It Works

If you're purchasing the Q12 survey for your team, multiple teams or the entire company:

  1. Select the number of survey participants, and add that number to your cart.
  2. When you are done shopping, go to checkout.
  3. Sign in to your account, or create an account if you don’t already have one.
  4. After you complete the checkout process, you will receive instructions on how to administer the survey and manage your results, reports and resources on your Gallup Access account.
  5. Send out the survey whenever you’re ready,* and explore the content and resources on Gallup Access for a full 12 months after your purchase date.

*You can distribute the survey to participants all at once or in batches at different times. But we will combine all of the reporting. If you need separate reporting, you need to purchase an additional survey with the proper number of participants.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know the Q12 is the best survey for my team?

No matter your team size, industry or location, the Q12 can help you measure and improve your employee engagement. Gallup has studied more than 2.7 million employees and 100,000 business units in 96 countries and 54 industries to understand the relationship between employee engagement and team performance. You can be assured that the Q12 is the most accurate measure of employee engagement because it has more research and database comparisons behind it than any other employee engagement survey.

Can I add additional participants to my survey after my purchase?

You cannot add additional participants to your survey after you purchase it. Make sure you choose the correct number of participants before you make your purchase.

How soon will my reports be ready after the survey has closed?

Your survey reporting will be ready within 24-hours after your survey closes.

Can I send out my survey to different people at different times?

Yes, you can distribute the survey to participants in batches at different times or all at once if you prefer. But we will combine all of the reporting. *You need to purchase separate reporting and census one by one.

Are there better purchasing options if I want to administer more than one employee engagement survey per year?

It depends on the size of your company. If you have over 100 employees and want to administer multiple surveys per year, we recommend other pricing and plans with unlimited survey options and access to more Gallup resources at the same price as buying a single survey twice a year. Book a demo with us to learn about your options.

What should I do if I want to purchase a survey for more than 500 participants?

We offer several pricing options and plans for companies of all sizes. Book a demo with us to learn about your options.

Will I get the same survey and reports that I did when I purchased the Q12 survey on

While the survey questions and methodology are the same, there are a few key differences to the one-time survey on Gallup Access, including:

  • additional recommendations, learning resources and action tools
  • new reporting options
  • workgroup-level database comparisons instead of company-level database
  • user-initiated survey launch and close; no system-scheduled start and end dates
  • no ability to trend from data (download your data from before June 30, 2021, to keep your past results*)
  • no ability to add additional participants after purchase

*You will still be able to log in to the site and view your reports until June 30, 2021, but you won’t be able to purchase or administer your surveys on the site after Nov. 20, 2020.
