Employee Climate Surveys Made Easy

Curious as to whether your staff are more engaged on a Tuesday in comparison with Friday? Wonder how the restructure is affecting the wellbeing of the troops? Andrew Marty says you can find out in minutes!.

I think that the price of valid climate surveys is one of the scandals of psychological measurement – we have had to disappoint many potential clients in the past by quoting unaffordable prices for instruments provided by third parties.

In early 2015, SACS conducted a major study into engagement with Deakin University, giving us the intellectual property to develop a new, highly contemporary and very affordable climate and engagement survey.

The SACS Engagement Measure is validated against existing international measures, and we have norms for Australian organisations and industries. We have kept the instrument very short and easy to complete. For instance, just nine questions give you a bullet-proof, best practice measure of engagement. Other measures assess factors known to cause engagement to be high or low, so you can decide how to respond to the results team by team.

Climate survey companies have historically been obscenely profitable, but all that is changing. Now we have our own product, and we will be launching it at a highly disruptive price in the next couple of months. You can see some of the fascinating things we discovered about engagement in the Australian workforce in this recent study.

SACS was approached by Reffind to offer our new engagement survey device on their mobile phone platform. What a great idea! You’ll now be able to measure the pulse of your workforce – with only nine questions each time – to see how their engagement varies. This will make such surveys extremely easy and quick to complete – as you can see below.
