In this month’s edition of Sustainably Engaged, I’m thrilled to announce a new product release – the Advanced Analytics module of our survey platform.
With the move to agile forms of employee listening, people insight and analytics teams need simple ways of housing data from multiple surveys (census, pulse, entry, exit, etc.) in one place and mining it for critical insights. Not only that, they want to be able to link their survey results with the wealth of data held in their existing HRIS (Oracle, Success Factors, etc.). Until now, this has not been an easy task. Teams have grappled with spreadsheets, analytics tools and databases – often, to little effect.
That’s why we spent the last year building a system that does all the hard work for you, and allows you to spend your time focused on providing the business with insights, rather than scripting research tools or playing with data files.
The system integrates all your survey and HRIS data into one database. The simple interface and data visualizations allow you to quickly find answers to critical talent, HR and business questions, by:
- Drilling into your hierarchy with interactive tree-maps
- Creating heat maps of multi-layered cross tabs
- Tracking cohorts over time and multiple surveys
- Creating, ranking and sorting tables
If you have ambitions beyond simple descriptive statistics, and want to answer questions such as:
- Where in our hierarchy are the hot spots?
- Which employee segments are driving high/low scores on a particular question?
- Are there differences in perceived growth opportunities between male and female senior recruits across the organization?
- Do employees with high performance ratings have higher levels of engagement?
- What is the impact of our onboarding program?
- What’s behind the turnover of our senior executives?
- Which teams have the highest levels of leadership effectiveness?
Then this could be a tool for you. Here’s a quick summary:
Drilldown – Explore your results for any question by drilling down into all levels of your hierarchy using tree-maps. Ideal for digging into the groups driving low scoring items.
Crosstabs – Create heat maps of employee opinions allowing you to quickly identify hotspots. Perfect for understanding differences in opinion based on combinations of multiple demographic variables from your survey and HRIS data (e.g., hierarchy, location, gender, level, age, performance rating, etc.)
Opinions over time –Track defined cohort groups over time and across multiple surveys. Define unique groups based on survey demographic and HRIS variables.
Ranking – When you simply need a table of data, ranked and sorted, with multiple variables of your choice. Perfect for identifying top and bottom scoring teams or managers.
