Innovative products for the entire employee journey
Our offering covers the entire spectrum of modern feedback instruments all along the employee journey. These products are scientifically sound and suitable for international deployment. We adapt them to your company's unique situation and needs.
Analyze and improve new employees' integration
Specialists and managers are in short supply. Finding the best is not easy, so you invest heavily in recruitment, selection and hiring, particularly in core businesses and growth regions. You strike gold and bring some good people on board. But what do you do when they arrive?
Many HR organizations lack the means to methodically gather feedback on how well newcomers are integrating and to what extent your investment is paying off. The first weeks and months are crucial to new employees' engagement and productivity. These early events and experiences set the course for the future and seal your reputation as an employer.
Our onboarding survey generally calls for new employees to answer questions about their entry and experience with your company after the first week, first month and first three months.
It tells you how well your integration program is working, if new employees soon feel at home in the company, and what you can do to further improve new employees' integration so they can contribute to the company's success that much faster. You will also learn if your investments are reaping the expected rewards. What's more, this set of surveys sends a powerful message to your new employees—you value their opinions and are interested in hearing about their experience.
Measuring strategic fitness, driving organizational development
Company-wide employee surveys help you understand how staff and managers around the world think. They provide valuable information about your organization's performance. Above all, though, they afford you the unique opportunity to take targeted actions to drive the development of your culture and company. Surveys can do all this, but only if they are strategic tools designed to purpose.

Your strategic fitness and corporate goals are always foremost in our minds. And we go to great lengths to lighten your HR organization's workload.
A host of medium-sized companies and large global corporations have relied on our expertise for many years. Our database of international benchmarks and cultural indicators helps you understand and put results into perspective.
Measuring progress, maintaining momentum in a flexible, distributed and agile way
Organizations are constantly changing and evolving. If you want to know where you stand and if things are moving in the right direction, you need timely feedback. It pays to check your bearings on your journey, especially in between classic company-wide employee surveys. How are the core issues coming along? Are we making any progress? Of course, the requirements, topics and timing for this pulse-taking may vary from team to team.
Our tools enable you to create and conduct surveys flexibly, in line with your needs. You decide who, when, where, and what topics and questions. For example, your teams could fall back on the previous global ES's set of questions. You can also tap our pool of scientifically sound concepts and questions or formulate questions of your own.
Pulse surveys help keep your company on track. They afford your teams and units greater flexibility. Above all, though, they put you in the driver's seat.
Recognizing and developing good leadership work, improving leadership performance
A great deal of effort went into developing your leadership guidelines. But are your managers living by these principles? Do you wish to zero in on specific areas and steadily improve managers' leadership skills? And do you want your leaders to step up to the demands of modern management?
We tailor our upward feedbacks to suit your unique requirements. They will reveal to what extent your managers are exhibiting the leadership behavior you expect. Have your company's leadership guidelines yet to be formalized? Then we will be happy to share our insight into what modern management is all about. Count on us to determine if your leaders' conduct is having a positive effect on your employees' engagement and performance.
Upward feedbacks can be conducted with 180°/270°/360° feedback and with or without self-assessment. They may be carried out company-wide, for larger units, or on demand, for individual managers. You decide what the leader is called upon to do, what kind of support, if any, will be provided, who gets to see the results, and where the data goes. We know what works best under the given conditions and will advise you accordingly.
Pursuing specific topics, propelling organizations forward
Your organization's performance hinges on a set of factors. Leadership, information and communication policies, working conditions, the workforce's grasp of the strategy, international collaboration—these are just a few of the many variables. Do your people understand and support the changes underfoot and is the transition well-managed? How agile are your teams?
We have science-based sets of questions to analyze specific topics and advance your cause. They address strategic fitness, leadership, engagement, commitment, the workforce's understanding of your strategy, the clarity of role definitions, alignment, the culture of innovation, change, productivity, autonomy, cooperation, customer centricity, working atmosphere, trust, emotional security, health and many more topics. We also have the expertise to develop questions to address your specific concerns and ensure that they are understood at home and abroad.
Theme surveys can serve you well in situations such as major change projects. Sometimes a global employee survey pinpoints weaknesses that need to be analyzed in greater depth. At others, it is intuition that steers you towards an issue that wants to be addressed.
Our theme surveys include innovative psychological risk assessments that we developed jointly with Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft ergonomists.
Measuring and strengthening the efficacy of collaboration, sparking dynamic teamwork
Well-functioning teams, smooth collaboration across team boundaries, effective support from in-house service providers such as HR, IT and controlling—business success is unattainable without these factors in place. They are essential to every organization's alignment, innovation, efficiency and agility, and to their employees' satisfaction, engagement and performance.
Our team surveys, collaborative surveys and internal customer surveys help you accurately gauge strengths and weaknesses to build on the former and improve the latter. We can conduct a general survey, take random samples, or poll specific teams to this end. TEAMIE, our versatile online tool, is the spark that can ignite dynamic teamwork and help you develop high-performance teams. Our internal customer surveys take the 'business partner' approach to support your efforts to improve internal services and collaboration with in-house customers.
If you wish, our coaches can help you initiate a constructive dialog, set the right kind of team dynamics into motion, and translate survey results into enduring improvements.
Understanding and assessing experience, enhancing employer attractiveness
You went to great lengths to recruit and invested heavily to train people who are appreciated by colleagues and customers alike. It hurts when good employees leave.
Research shows that more than 50% of undesirable staff turnover could be avoided because it is within companies' power to change the top reasons why employees leave. Knowing why and how employees leave is a big part of modern HR management. Also, departing employees share their experiences with friends, in social networks, and perhaps also with your customers. It is crucial for their last impression of your company to be a good one.
Our exit surveys help you methodically analyze why your employees leave, where they are going, and how they will remember and talk about your company. They reveal a great deal about your company's ability to meet the workforce's expectations of an employer. They also give you an idea of where you stand and what you can do to continue improving your company. And people will have better things to say about the company that cares enough to ask departing employees for feedback.
