The Workplace Innovation Diagnostic ®

The Workplace Innovation Diagnostic ® employee survey is designed to give you an in-depth understanding of where change is needed and how to deliver it.

Unlike traditional engagement surveys, the Diagnostic focuses on evidence-based workplace practices associated with high performance, engagement and workforce health, and its results indicate specific actions at team, department, site and organisational levels.

Improve performance

The Workplace Innovation Diagnostic ® is your route to employee engagement, culture change and improved business performance. The transformation starts with an induction workshop (on site or via video conference) for senior team members and change leaders, explaining the Diagnostic’s rationale and how its results are translated into actions.

Grounded in a large body of international research, the Diagnostic survey asks employees and managers to comment on various aspects of their working lives, including:

  • Job Design, Teams and Technology
  • Organisational Structures, Management and Procedures
  • Improvement and Innovation
  • Leadership and Employee Voice.

Our online action planning tool enables your change team to work on follow-up actions from remote locations with advice and support from our experts.

We provide practical advice and support throughout, ensuring smooth delivery of the Diagnostic, the highest possible rate of return from the survey, and the identification of clear follow-up actions.

“I’ve spent too many hours in my career struggling with engagement surveys. We should stop pretending that they deliver any change, let alone sustainable transformation. They really are dead on their feet.

This is the most focused Diagnostic I’ve seen. It identifies where workplace practices can be improved, and drives an action plan that is going to deliver lasting change.”  

Sue Evans, Former HR Director, Warwickshire County Council

All of a sudden there was a method of measuring the issues we could see in the company. Once you can measure it, you can actually analyse it and do something about it.

I can understand from the Diagnostic what the genuine pulse of the business is and how it feels. Previously, I would have just kept on blindly continuing thinking everything’s good.
