Organizational management and efficiency are critical to running a successful, high-powered company. A type of employee survey known as an organizational assessment allows companies to monitor, quantify, and adjust certain dynamics that drive organizational performance and employee satisfaction. This type of employee survey is very powerful and can be used to outperform competitors. Here are a few key areas that are assessed to paint an accurate picture of the current landscape:
Understand company structure
A company may understand job titles and know who each employee answers to, but there are many more questions to be answered that require drilling down into the everyday work lives of your employees. One of the most critical questions to ask on an employee survey is how the different parts of the organization work together to accomplish goals. Organizational assessment surveys help you understand how all departments interact to accomplish tasks and where weaknesses and inefficiencies exist. This information guides management to make the decisions to strengthen the company’s core.
Improve company culture
Company culture has an enormous effect on the outlook of the workforce and their productivity. Corporate culture is a leading reason employees stay or leave a company, and new hires consider it one of the most important factors in accepting a new position. For example, a company with employees who perceive management in a negative light because of recent mergers, unethical operations, or a host of other issues may have a high turnover rate, customer service issues, and poor financial performance. It can be difficult to correct these problems without determining the root causes. An organizational assessment survey provides insights into these core issues and offers a clear path towards improving performance.
Assess management style
Managers are responsible for inspiring productivity and guiding their teams toward the successful completion of various projects and tasks. Employee surveys can determine if the management styles being used at the company are effective or if there are holes in the structure that need immediate attention. Including questions about management style on the organizational assessment survey can provide ideas for company improvements that better align company culture, practices, and the overall success of the company.
