Post-Survey Consulting & Action Planning

The Next Step on the Road to an Engaged Workforce

You’ve invested a lot in your survey. 

You have all this information.

Now what?

While many of our clients successfully implement action plans, it is not uncommon for many to get stuck on “what’s next”?  Often overwhelmed with the data, sometimes it is hard to know what to do with it.  Common “mishaps” include focussing on the wrong items, disjointed and disorganized planning, not knowing who takes responsibility for the actions, not knowing how to use the data and comments, and in the end, not having a more engaged workforce.

Let the experts in employee engagement walk you through how to take action on your organization’s results and create a more engaged workforce!

Best Practice Action Planning


"The best action plan is the action plan that your employees develop themselves. It's not only about the ideas, and solutions, and how effective they may be but action planning that is led by employees, no matter what they come up with, that process is going to be engaging in and of itself.


The secret sauce to improved employee engagement is really about getting the employees involved at all levels. This is what our process is based on."


- Norm Baillie-David, Senior Vice President, Consulting
