Trust & Capacity
Org & Culture - Org & Culture

Work Effects created the Trust & Capacity SurveyTM to gain insight into what your employee are thinking and what management can do to keep them motivated, engaged and productive. A Trust & Capacity Survey can accomplish a number of valuable things:

  1. Demonstrate to employees a willingness to listen and improve
  2. Uncover actual employee attitudes around work, management and the organization
  3. Facilitate the right adjustments to align company actions with employee expectations
  4. Pinpoint areas where management can improve
  5. Help uncover ways to retain good employees
  6. Increase workforce trust, satisfaction, commitment and capacity
  7. Guide action planning to create an engaging and motivating work environment
  8. Provide a solid measurement for real and lasting change management

A Towers Watson study in 2008 found that organizations that concentrate on employee engagement find they “showed a 19% increase in operating income over a 12-month period compared to a 33% decrease in companies with disengaged employees.” Even more significant is the findings of a Center for Creative Leadership World Leadership Survey in 2009, “…80% of employees with a high degree of trust in management are committed to the organization compared with 25% of employees with a low degree of trust.” Basically, if you want engaged employees they have to trust you.

At Work Effects, we believe that trust is the underpinning to effective organizations and completing an assessment survey is only part of the solution to creating engaged employees. You must also use that valuable knowledge obtained through a survey to create an action plan that is tailored to each individual to become a more effective organization. If not, you’ll fall into the same trap so many other organizations have fallen into because of poor follow-through.

According to the 2011 BlessingWhite Employee Engagement Report “engagement surveys without visible follow-up actions may actually decrease engagement levels, suggesting that organizations should think twice before flipping the switch on measurement without 100% commitment for action planning based on the results.” So, what to do?

Once completed, the real work begins as well as the real benefits. Now that your organization knows what its employees are thinking through the Trust & Capacity Survey, it can develop programs that will help them become better leaders, and in turn, benefit the organization.
