The Workplace Innovation Diagnostic ®

Do you want to enhance engagement and performance throughout your workforce?

Are you looking for a way to improve your organisation’s productivity or capacity for innovation?

And to bring your people with you in facing the challenges and opportunities of an unpredictable future?

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.

We are proud that the Workplace Innovation Diagnostic ® is registered with the European Union Trademark No. 017949433


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
  • Engagement
  • Health and Mental Wellbeing
  • Your Custom Questions

You are in control

Results are broken down by team, department, professional group, or any other criteria specified by you. And you add your own questions.

Your dashboard gives updates on completion and allows you to view, create, customise and share online reports, action plans and ‘how to improve’ guides.

Detailed breakdowns allow you to analyse responses, opportunities for change and priorities for action, at every level of your organisation.

Our interactive online Action Plan helps you translate your Diagnostic results, guiding you where to start and what actions you need to take.

Easy access on any device, and with a completion time of around 15 minutes, our Workplace Innovation Diagnostic® gives your employees a voice: ideas, suggestions, open comments, feedback.

Visual Reporting

Results, shown as red, amber or green scores for 11 specific areas of working practice, indicate the potential for targeted change or consolidation. Findings are broken down by department, team, professional group or other variables that you might require.

Our experienced team will work with you to translate the Diagnostic results into an action plan, delivering a clear strategy for effective and sustainable change. 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.
