Time for each driver of engagement

This setting is designed to ensure that each driver average consists of up-to-date scores, even when the overall time window is long. The recommended default setting is off to allow Peakon to capture the most recent answers from employees within the Time for all data window. 

When enabled, the setting will capture the most recent answer for each driver of engagement from within one of the three windows selected. 

If you do not see this option and would like to enable it, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager or our support team at

To illustrate how the setting works, imagine we have a survey that runs monthly, for just two employees with just two sets of driver questions being asked: the Autonomy driver question and its two sub-driver questions, and the  workload question. The survey started running in January 2018, and it is currently February 2019.

Peakon doesn’t ask every question in every round, instead Peakon uses question sampling to reduce the survey length. This table shows the answers given to each question at each round. An ‘x’ means that the employee answered that question - the score doesn’t actually matter for these examples.

In reality, employees normally answer more frequently within each driver, which reduces the impact of these filters. These are exaggerated examples designed only to show how they work.

In the following example where we assume that Time for all data is set to 1 Year, and Time for each driver of engagement is set to 3 months.

Starting with the 12 month window of data:

We then draw an additional 3 month window (in orange) around each driver for each employee, starting with the most recent answer per employee and driver. 

Peakon then takes the latest score per question, but again this has no further impact.

Compare this to the result seen with a 1 Year Time for all data but without the Time for each driver of engagement set to 3 months. The scores marked in red are no longer included, because although they are the latest score for that question, and they fall within the overall time window, they are now too old compared to the latest score for that driver.
