Entry & Exit Surveys

Attract and Retain Top Talent with Guidance from Those Who Know Best

Overview             Entry Surveys            Exit Surveys            Testimonials            Solutions

People are attracted to an employer for different reasons. Their motivations for leaving differ too. The value of Entry & Exit surveys comes from data compilation and analysis. It’s when the same things are expressed by different people that the dots start to connect. Themes emerge. Both tools can lead to influential insights, improved attraction and retention, and better management performance.

Learn from New Hires: TalentEntry

Used to improve recruiting and onboarding practices, TalentEntry collects systematic feedback from new hires and internal transfers at 30, 90 and 180 days – or other timelines of your choice.

Entry Survey Stages

Measure Three Important Stages

TalentMap's standard entry surveys are deployed in a series of three scientifically designed online questionnaires that explore different aspects of the onboarding experience.

Recruiting & Onboarding Practices
The first looks at the interview process, job description versus actual work, orientation & training, manager & colleagues, and overall fit with the organization.

Training
The second delves into training in terms of timing, content, flow, and recommendations for improvement.

First Year Impressions
The third and final entry survey explores internal information & communication practices, personal & professional growth opportunities, work resources, immediate manager, and general sense of engagement.

We liked the instrument; it was an easy-to-use online tool. City leaders were very impressed with the summary presentation. Overall, it was exceptional value for money. TalentMap is good if not better than larger, higher-profile competitors. We were impressed with the quality of service from start to finish.

Gerard Saretsky | Manager of Organization Development, City of Medicine Hat

The straightforward nature of the easily understood questions that allow for benchmark comparisons against organizations of similar size and industry, along with the professional support from staff have made our first experience with an externally-led survey very, very successful. I’ve been impressed by both TalentMap’s scientific and people-focused approach to employee engagement which has made it easy for us to connect issues and prioritize the actions we’ll take for ongoing improvement. We’re now on step 7 of TalentMap’s 7-Step Process for Ensuring Success and the entire staff of the City of Kent is working together to make our collective future even brighter than previously thought possible!

Marty Fisher | Director of Human Resources, City of Kent Washington

We used TalentMap to deploy our employee engagement survey and the entire process from beginning to end was seamless. We couldn't have asked for better support. Our project coordinator answered all of our questions in a timely manner and helped us to setup and deploy the survey within a surprisingly short time frame. The reporting tools that we had access to during the survey allowed us to provide in-depth updates at the executive level. Our summary presentations to interpret survey results were informative and easily digestible, which in turn made our job easier to interpret results to the entire organization. We would definitely recommend TalentMap to any organization seeking professional services with employee engagement matters!

Cynthia Walters | Independent Consultant, Christian Children's Fund of Canada

This is now our 3rd year using TalentMap as our solution for Employee Engagement Surveys. The team at TalentMap is terrific from beginning to end and the project management team have always ensured that we feel supported both during and after the implementation process. The insights and analytics that the surveys have provided our organization are invaluable and have helped shape our engagement initiatives going forward.

Daniel Copeland | Senior Manager of Human Resources, Community Trust

Our employee engagement survey experience with TalentMap was excellent from start to finish. The software user experience was seamless and we felt very supported throughout the project. TalentMap’s team ensured that the project kept moving and that our questions were answered promptly.
