TalentGate: Employee Survey Platform

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.

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!
