Best Practices

Making use of best practices gets the most out of research investments.

At its best, an employee survey is a very functional and cost-efficient way of identifying the development needs of an organisation and its units and implementing the necessary changes. Turning survey results into development measures can be a challenging task because the results can be interpreted differently in different situations and contexts.

This can result in the survey investment not providing the company with the desired benefits: “The seed has been sown, but the harvest has not been gathered.” In addition, the personnel of the company becomes frustrated when the needs for change identified in the survey are not resolved. In this case, the risk is that the motivation to respond remains low in the future.

The purpose of the Best Practices Library is to help individual supervisors find survey result interpretation practices that best suit their situation and leadership style.

To facilitate supervisors’ work, Corporate Spirit has collected methodology data based on its extensive practical survey and consulting experience to its new Best Practices Library. The purpose of the Library is to help individual supervisors find survey result interpretation practices that best suit their situation and leadership style.

The Best Practices Library’s benefits for the organisation and individual supervisors include the following:

  • A wide range of thoughts, approaches and methods as well as options for all sub-questions.
  • Practices are easily found in the same survey system, which is also used for reporting the survey results.
  • Every supervisor with read rights to the report can use the library independently.
  • The library enables all supervisors to make better, more effective development solutions, regardless of their unit’s survey results.
  • Supervisors need less external support, and the support can be more effectively focused on those facing the most challenging situations.
  • Instructions support supervisors and encourage them to adopt a collaborative management style that includes assigning responsibility to employees. The Best Practices Library is available to supervisors in the Cixtranet® survey system.
