Executive Analysis and Reporting

Most significant transformation in organizations only happens when your executives can get behind it and lead the way.  Our Executive Analysis Presentations are designed to focus attention on the real story behind your data, and to foster dialogue that will truly catalyze positive change.

To do this, we use advanced data modeling techniques and statistical evaluations that best create the insights needed to tell the story — our analyses highlight where your leadership and organizational practices are providing a great experience for your employees; and we shed light on the issues and barriers that are holding down the potential in your organization, with clear recommendations for action.

From Data to Insight
The executive presentation development process starts with prep meetings with your survey team, HR leaders, and key business executives prior to the data analysis stage to gather contextual information about the current state of the business, recent changes, and how these may relate to the areas measured in the survey.  These insights help us tailor the analyses and presentation toward your business needs and goals.

Once we have a clear understanding of the business context and specific reporting expectations and criteria, we begin our analyses at the company level, using our Integrative Survey Data Analysis process.  This typically involves key descriptive statistics, meaningful cross-tabulations, and an inferential analysis process.  Our analyses will make it clear to your execs:

  • What’s most important – Which investments in action will have the biggest payoff by examining key relationships between the key desired outcomes and possible areas for action, e.g., Key Drivers of Engagement, and Linkage Analyses, using Multiple Regression procedures, Relative Weights Analysis (a more advanced form of Multiple Regression), and Path Analysis.
  • Where to focus attention – clear visibility into engagement levels and where in the organization there is the greatest variance in the results by exploring items and themes for demographic and organizational differences using: Segmentation Analysis, Analysis of Variance, Chi-Square, and CHAID procedures to identify potential covariates.
  • What to do to improve – Specific suggestions and recommendations for action based on over 40 years’ experience, typically directed towards management (Executive Team, Business Leaders) and HR audiences.

Prior to the actual presentation, we ask for our clients’ assistance in previewing the report to ensure that all requests were included and that all data definitions and business segment information is accurate.  The resulting analyses can be delivered in-person (highly suggested for the best outcome) or via teleconference.

Our consultants and senior staff bring many years of experience and insight to these presentation discussions, providing a clear line of sight for senior leaders in terms of focusing their action on survey results. It is quite frequent for our senior staff to continue to work closely with the Head of HR and the Executive Team on taking action on the survey.
