“Improving skills in HR is key. It is about developing a roadmap, knowing where you are headed and making decisions about technology, talent and key initiatives. We are big believers in think big, start small, and scale fast. A good place to start is the employee engagement survey.”
“Beyond looking at representation issues, Saratoga helps identify potential blind spots. This is where more companies examine the issue of pay equity and ensure they are driving promotion rates, separation rates, and structure of work to be appropriate in a more diverse and inclusive environment.”
“If exit surveys and interviews are well designed, they can produce quantitative information that you can utilize to drive decisions.”
“Companies now want to understand employee journeys from onboarding to daily work experiences to exit surveys. They’re trying to become more strategic about how all of it comes together in order to build and deliver an exceptional [employee] experience that ultimately has ROI attached to it.”
What if you could gauge hundreds of HR/talent metrics with only 1-2 hours of effort? Our Saratoga tool is revolutionizing our approach to HR criterion.
