Workplace Assessments & Surveys

Request a FREE Consultation

Our clients have used leadership and employee assessments for recruiting top talent, developing and retaining employees and for identifying and training leaders for the future.


Assessment tools can help organizations with performance management, employee development and succession planning.

It’s not easy to select, develop and retain top talent.

Workplace Assessments are powerful tools to support your talent management strategy.

Our consultants have expertise in conducting a broad range of assessments; from looking at the workplace as a whole to assessing leadership capabilities, emotional intelligence and behavioural styles.

We all know that leadership requires more than a high IQ. Leadership and emotional intelligence assessment tools can help your organization to identify future leaders and provide valuable feedback to current leaders and employees to enable them to develop skills and become more effective in their roles.

We work with clients to design a program that is specific to the needs of the organization, utilizing 360 feedback tools, and/or administering validated and reliable assessment tools.

Many employers would like to learn more about what it takes to create an engaging workplace, where employees perform their best work in order to utilize their strengths. Research has shown that employee engagement can lead to increased performance and therefore increased revenue and retention.

Our consultants have experience in creating surveys to assess:

  • Employee Engagement
  • Employee Well-being
  • Team Effectiveness
  • Culture Assessment
  • Diversity and Inclusion Assessment

Our experience has been that employees are more likely to share their thoughts and opinions in a survey that is administered by an external provider. We will work with you to research and select the right tool for your business.

We have consultants who are experienced and certified in many assessment tools.  Our consultants will work with you to select the right tool for your needs, and if needed, to provide workshops or one-on-one coaching to support the assessment.
