I have been asked to complete a online survey by my company. The email inviting me to do this reads (company named replaced):
This email is a formal invitation for you to take part in a confidential survey that will aid in strategic, retention planning initiatives as ABC Corp. builds for the future. I understand the importance of being a part of an organization that values my contribution and insight and encourages employees to speak up. Please understand, here at ABC Corp., we do and this is your opportunity to seize that moment.
The link provided is for Survey Monkey.com site. I have not clicked the link yet so I do not know what the questions are, but the tone of the email suggested that an employee may/can say negative things.
However, before I do anything I want to make sure my responses will not be linked back to me. I would assume that Survey Monkey will be able to log my IP address or some unique identifier, but will my company be given that information? Is it possible to remain anonymous?
