The purpose of this audit is to identify how people experience the overall culture within your organisation. The feedback enables you to understand what employees experience in your workplace and provides indicators for how they would like to experience their workplace in the future..
The assessment uses a pairwise comparison scale where participants to allocate a percentage to each of two opposing cultural characteristics. For example –
- Management lead by example with the actions of all employees being guided by the mission, vision, values and strategic direction
- Lack of strategic planning, little or no reference to mission, vision, values or direction during decision making processes.
If you believe Statement One is truer than Statement Two, say 75% for Statement One, then you must rank Statement Two at 25%. The two scores should equal 100.
The aim of this audit is to start a conversation among your people. It is a straightforward audit which doesn’t take people long to complete. I believe this assessment should be completed by all employees and volunteers.
Following assessment, all responses are collected and analysed for trends and feedback. A report is prepared showing results in both graphical and tabular form and all written comments as provided by participants.
A draft of the report is circulated to all participants, who then gather to discuss the collective feedback, prioritise future actions and prepare an action plan. This action plan is then incorporated into a final version of the report.
I am then available to remain engaged with your team, monitor implementation, provide coaching and mentoring and collect evidence of progress and success, if requested.*
*Ongoing engagement of this nature is not included in the audit fee. It is an extra cost which will be quoted upon request.
