ORGANISATIONAL CLIMATE SURVEY

An important Change Management & planning tool:

Workplace Climate Surveys provide a picture of your organisation’s needs.

A survey can be used to solicit employee opinions anonymously on a variety of culture factors including the organisation’s success in communicating its mission and vision, the level of resistance and engagement, stress, reward/recognition and morale.

The process:

  • Scoping session with your organisation’s leadership team to ascertain goals
  • Provision of  a Work Climate Survey expertly designed by Cheryl McCormack, customised to your organisation’s specific requirements and consisting of 50 – 60 questions
  • This survey will help your organisation gauge the work climate providing a picture of your employee needs and mindset
  • Responses are anonymous, with employees more inclined to engage as the process is handled externally from your organisation’s management or HR
  • Responses are analysed using a mixed methods approach ensuring quantitative data is further enriched with qualitative descriptive feedback
  • An easy to interpret outcomes based Climate & Culture report and a one hour feedback presentation
  • Results include informative graphics and charts as well as helpful Action Plan proposals for future implementation by the executive leadership team &/or further consultative assistance

Please note:

  • Once a service has been confirmed by your organisation in writing, a 25% deposit of the total fee will be invoiced, payable prior to services commencing
  • The remainder of the fee will be invoiced on completion of the Interpretation and Feedback report and presentation, payable within 14 days from the date of the invoice
  • In the case where additional consultation is sought, this will be charged at the rate of $120.00 per hour payable within 14 days from the date of the invoice
  • In-person sessions can be arranged across Sydney, Sydney metro, Greater Sydney, Illawarra, Newcastle, Southern Highlands, Riverland and ACT.  Remote sessions using Zoom work well for other locations, alternatively, fees can be negotiated for interstate travel.

  • GST is in addition to stated fees

Assists managers & teams through the transition:

  • Additional follow up sessions with individuals &/or teams are available
