February 2014 Newsletter


Welcome to our February 2014 newsletter. Here at Getfeedback we improve our clients' business performance through their people.

At this time of year a number of our clients are reviewing progress since undertaking their engagement surveys. In this month?s newsletter our lead engagement consultant Alana Inness looks at some of the areas to consider to make the move from data to action.

Q1 is also typically a busy time for our clients recruiting graduates; with the Watson Glaser continuing to grow in both popularity and reputation, it's our most popular used tool to help identify the best candidates for key business positions. If you are sifting large volumes of graduate applications and would like to discuss how we could increase the accuracy of your process please contact a member of the Getfeedback team.

On another note February 2014 has seen the launch of our 360 referral scheme, enabling both those that are recommending us and the clients they send our way to benefit from their referrals. Please read on if you or someone you know may benefit from the scheme.






Beyond the Survey: taking action to increase staff commitment

It seems like not a day goes by at the moment without news of a new surveying tool or employee engagement model. Here at Getfeedback we're strong believers in understanding what makes your employees tick but sometimes we see organisations that get so caught up in measuring they forget that the most important part of doing a survey is the action phase.

This year as economic confidence starts to increase, and 54% of employers looking to increase staffing levels, we're seeing the level of retention within organisations start to become a risk with 87% of employees saying they do not intend to stay with their current employers for the next 12 months. So in this article our consultant, Alana Inness, urges you to go beyond the survey.

Maximise your team's potential

The Orpheus Team Potential Report measures the true potential of a team by focusing on the strengths and development areas of the team as a whole. It provides advice, tips, and information on how to maximise the potential and develop the performance of the team.

Within Orpheus Team Potential Report it is recognised that different team settings may require different strengths. For example, a Change Team operating in a highly entrepreneurial environment would benefit from a tendency to take risks and learn from its mistakes, whereas such a tendency within a high risk, safety dependent environment could be a serious liability. Strength in one setting may be neutral, or a risk factor, in another. Thus, team profiles are most relevant when related to particular settings. Teams that match themselves to particular environments and types of work are more likely to be successful and deliver results.

The Orpheus Team Potential Report can suggest the optimal environment for a particular team, and also indicate how a team is likely to function within a particular environment. The report includes development suggestions for maximising the performance of the team.
