Details & Time Frame
Beyond Engagement: Turning Your Employee Surveys into Strategic Weapons
Traditional employee surveys—even engagement surveys—have run into leadership resistance when they have not been redesigned in a more strategic framework. While many studies have explored the relationship between engagement and business performance, recent research demonstrates that alignment and capabilities define aspects of the relationship between people issues and business results that engagement alone does not capture.

Dr. William A. Schiemann, founder and CEO of Metrus Group will introduce and discuss the Strategic Employee Surveys as a new, holistic framework for measuring and managing human capital—one that measures all three core factors of Alignment, Capabilities and Engagement.

Strategic Employee Surveys help line- and HR-leadership teams connect employee, customer, and financial performance; provide strategic direction for human capital investments; offer succession planning and leadership development input; motivate executives and middle managers to take focused action; and deliver crucial human capital metrics for boards and executive teams.

Dr. Schiemann will share a fresh strategic and practical perspective on how employee surveys and related measurement tools can serve as key tools in the strategic arsenal of any executive team. In this dynamic session, Dr. Schiemann will explore:

• New strategic approaches to talent management and human capital measurement
• Why “your father’s employee survey” is no longer the tool for top-level decision making—and how strategic surveys can provide big payoffs in key decision areas
• Groundbreaking research that links people measurement with business performance, using Metrus Group’s unique People Equity concept
• How organizations are using strategic surveys and other measures to drive business results
• Practical tips for building, executing, or converting your legacy survey into a more powerful Strategic Employee Survey that drives strategy execution and performance improvement
