Our approach isdistinctive and inclusive.

1. Role Diversity

Every role in an organization is important, whether it is customer facing or back office, strategic or tactical, routine or creative. ​ We will ask our customers to ensure we assess all roles across the company, especially making sure that we understand how each role connects with others to see the big picture within and across separate teams.

2. Demographic Diversity

We request that we have access to assess all demographics across the company ensuring an equal representation by gender, age, ethnicity, education level, marital status, sexual orientation, religion, and/or any other factors to be determined with voluntary levels of disclosure. ​ Though we cannot require participation nor self disclosure, the more transparency from our respondents, the more likely we are to solve challenges of under-represented and under-served demographic segments of employees and stakeholders.

3. Global, Regional and Local Diversity

To understand the whole organization, we have to hear from employees in every continent, country, region, territory, state, city, and office. There are countless business practices, languages, customs, and cultural variations to consider when working in an organization larger than one office. ​

4. Performance Diversity

We want to assess top, mid-level, and low performers which surprises many of our customers. ​ Not all top performers are engaged or in flow and not all poor performers lack potential. ​ We are interested in hearing from employees with positive and negative attitudes, as it is our hope to leverage the strengths we can while offering solutions to boost performance and morale.

5. Tenure & Level Diversity

We will assess employees at individual contributor, team lead, middle manager, leadership, and executive levels at all spans of tenure, brand new to those close to retirement. ​ Often times, the most senior and tenured employees learn from the less experienced who have fresh perspectives and innovative ideas, while the newbies have an opportunity to shift their perspectives by learning from invested employees.

Wellness Wave Live: How are organizations feeling?

The average score is on the left, and the number on the right represents the standard deviation. Telecommunications, Technology, Finance, and Manufacturing are the default industries.

σ = In statistics, the standard deviation is a measure of the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of values. A low standard deviation indicates that the values tend to be close to the mean of the set, while a high standard deviation indicates that the values are spread out over a wider range.
