org survey response rates
Bleg: What tricks do we have for increasing response rates for people working in organizations? The older literature suggests that org surveys have widely varying response rates. For example, this 1999 review in Human Relations finds that top management journals publish studies with an *average* response rate of 36%. This 2008 Human Relations article finds a response rate of 35%. So, how can we pop up the response rate? We have the Dillman method (letters), payment and multiple contacts. How else can we reach orgs?
