Your staff are your greatest asset. Are you making the best use of their ideas and talents?
A staff survey helps you to gather their ideas and perceptions It is the first, easy step in harnessing their talents, multiplying the value you get from your investment in their time.
Informing your improvement plan
The staff survey can be run alone or can be combined with our management review, on-site meetings and focus groups to provide an in-depth ExcellenceBenchmark assessment of the maturity of your organisation.
We will analyse the findings to provide a comprehensive report with a summary of your school's strengths and opportunities across all aspects of your operations to inform your school improvement plan.
The process can be tailored to your specific needs and budget. Please contact me to discuss your school's needs.
Whilst our staff survey allows staff to assess the effectiveness of your school from their personal perspective, the management review allows senior leaders to assess its effectiveness from a strategic viewpoint. It provides a self-assessed benchmark of organisational maturity.
