Creating the right employee engagement experience.

Research shows that the vast majority of people join an organisation enthusiastically ready to perform.  They are eager to do their best and they are open to the needs of their new employer.


But very few organisations are able to provide the employee experience required to maintain that level of employee engagement, even after only six months. Why?


Engagement is a challenge because measuring it and affecting it requires a holistic understanding of the organisational dynamic. It requires the commitment of workers and management, alignment with values and goals, the perseverance to pursue excellence and an energetic involvement of all in the company’s mission.


Levels of engagement may be impacted by something as big as culture or as unique as the behaviours of an immediate manager.  Therefore when we talk about employee engagement, we’re really talking about employee experience (EX). 


Learn how leading organisations are using 'people sustainability' to improve the EX.

Measuring your employee engagement is a start, but it’s what you do with the data that will set you apart and drive outcomes. We don’t just supply the surveys; we help you identify and make sense of actionable insights to drive meaningful change.

The future of employee listening - Five questions to consider


Over the past two years, employees have had to cope with a tremendous amount of terror, trauma, and change. If you haven’t asked your workforce how they are feeling, what their concerns are, and what support they need now and in the future, it will be challenging to serve them well.



Our team of dedicated experts can assist your organisation in measuring, analysing and developing solutions for your employee engagement and experience needs.

Using insights from our engagement tools means we can help you to develop a compelling employee experience for your organisation.

Bringing strategy, culture and people together.

Why partner with us


We work with you to assess and understand where strategy, culture, and people are misaligned with the view of helping you execute your business strategy, and how worker potential can be unlocked to drive performance.  


We then work with our clients to take action by driving change from each level of your organisation, where it makes sense. This could be working with leadership to ensure they see critical issues more clearly, and address them in a way that strengthens culture and drives lasting performance.  We also provide front-line managers with the guidance, tools, and resources they need to sustain employee motivation and unlock the potential of their people. And we enable HR to support those efforts and drive positive change.


By providing innovative, forward-thinking recommendations geared toward leveraging talent – while aligning these efforts with business strategy – we can help build a partnership-driven culture, an enthusiastic workforce, and effective leadership and management practices that will drive performance.

    Our employee experience and engagement surveys go beyond providing powerful insights – they offer solid empirical evidence for action. With employee survey research, your organisation gets a data-based story and easy to follow reports to help you understand:

    • How engaged or disengaged employees are at every level in the organisation — an Engagement Index helps each manager measure employee engagement to understand how their team is doing relative to the rest of the organisation.
    • How your results compare with industry norms — normative database of over 6 million responses enables you to compare your scores.
    • Where to focus improving your employee engagement — key driver analysis identifies the priority areas to focus on that have the strongest correlations with overall engagement.
