Employee Engagement isn’t a “nice to have” anymore - it’s a strategic competitive advantage.
Monitoring employee engagement levels should be as critical as managing the bank account!
An Investors in People Diagnostic – essentially an employee engagement survey – is perfect for measuring your current levels of employee engagement and planning the next steps.
It becomes much easier to formulate strategy, challenge current beliefs, and start those critical conversations with key stakeholders and the management teams, when you have data to highlight the gaps.
As a uniting force, the information you get from your Diagnostic feeds your organisation with data, insights, standardised employee engagement language, metrics and ways of understanding and describing ‘best practice’ in this critical area.
How Your Diagnostic Works
As the Diagnostic service is based around our standard employee engagement survey, you get all of the elements of an Investors in People accreditation process, but without the award.
You’ll have a dedicated, independent and experienced Practitioner working with you and your key stakeholders to help broaden the organisational understanding around employee engagement.
On completion of the employee engagement survey, you’ll be presented with your survey data and a comprehensive report delivered via a feedback meeting where you get the opportunity to quiz the data and decide what to do with it. You’ll be supported by your Practitioner at every stage, which means you can move forward with clarity and purpose.
A Diagnostic ensures you are introducing and embedding the best possible initiatives to support your people – no wasted time, effort, discussions or investment. You’ll just be focused on the elements of employee engagement that really move the needle.
Used before your formal accreditation or alternatively as a stand-alone indicator of current levels of Employee Engagement, your survey gives you data, real insight and a working plan.
Get it right first time! Countless organisations share with us that having their survey allowed them to believe and totally commit to their employee engagement journey. After all, if the direction of your employee engagement strategy is wrong, then your speed doesn’t really matter!
Surveying your Employee Engagement:
Perception vs Reality
Each step of your Diagnostic journey is aligned with our framework, using key indicators that make up the building blocks of a high-performance organisation.
In any organisation there are three Employee Engagement realities:
The current perceived levels of Employee Engagement
The actual levels of Employee Engagement
The desired levels of Employee Engagement
The Investors in People survey is the very best way to build an Employee Engagement plan to span all three.
At the end of your assessment, we’ll take all of our findings and turn them into a report which shows you where you are versus where you would like to be.
With that you’ll also get bespoke recommendations to help you navigate your way to higher levels of employee engagement.
Your report is your action plan to continue on your journey.
Get accredited with Investors in People
After your Investors in People employee engagement survey is complete, you can decide to become accredited or not.
Becoming accredited highlights to your people, your stakeholders and your customers that you are committed to building and maintaining a highly engaged group of employees, working in a culture that provides them, and your business, with the best chance of success.
Our accreditations are valid for three years, and you’ll be fully supported by your Practitioner during that time to embed and execute the points highlighted in your action plan, that will take your organisation to the next level.
Your practitioner will check in with you at 12 and 24 months to see how you’re getting on, to course correct as needed and to offer you the guidance you need to drive continuous improvement.
