Workplace Culture Assessment

A workplace culture assessment creates the foundation for aligning workplace culture with the organization’s strategic objectives. Once the current norms and behaviors of the organization are fully understood, they can be leveraged to create greater efficiencies, support innovation, increase employee engagement, and positively impact the bottom line. Optimal cultures create high employee satisfaction, positively impacting company reputation and attracting top talent.

TIVC uses a collaborative approach together with qualitative and quantitative data to implement workplace culture assessment. TIVC relies on this data to arrive at a workplace culture profile that clearly defines organizational issues, the desired outcome, and what defines success. The return on an investment that optimizes culture is well worth the expense.
