Correlation - archery target

The power of correlations

Which areas, if you focus on them, will have a disproportionate impact on engagement? We answer this question by correlating your results with overall engagement, by factor and survey question.

  • Factor Correlation- we examine responses to certain factors that are indicative of overall engagement, so you can focus resource where it matters most
  • Top 15 Questions- we pinpoint the top 15 questions that are most highly correlated to engagement at your organisation, to help focus improvement efforts while giving a strong 15 questions for use in pulse surveys

The partnership that we've had with Best Companies has had a massive impact on the culture of the organisation and I think we have really safeguarded our future. We can also see that there are lots of other areas we could improve in and I think with the help of Best Companies supporting us with the feedback that we get, it's really going to reinforce what we're doing and help us in achieving the goals that we need to achieve as a business.

We believe participation in the programme helps us to attract quality staff who are looking for a long, progressive career rather than just a job, as well as attract suppliers who want to work with us and customers who want to buy from us. Our employees feel engaged and inspired by what they do and the Best Companies programme is pivotal in enabling us to celebrate our successes whilst also recognising tangible goals for the future so that we can continue to be one of the UK’s best places to work.
