“For many years now I have been talking with and listened to executives and employees to fully understand what makes it so hard for many organizations to improve their culture and engagement. Employee surveys are common-place, but it is so often not clear what to make out of the results. Survey results are frequently not actionable; hence it remains a mystery what to do with them and where the real root causes of low engagement lie. Lastly, even if actions were decided, managers and employees seem to lack the will and the skill to implement changes. A frequent issue is the need for scalability and the cost of implementing changes. Good people within an organization quickly spread too thin and consultants are too expensive over the long run.
HammerResults and its methodologies were specifically created with the vision in mind to provide answers and very doable solutions to these practical hurdles. Moreover, we want to fundamentally change how organizations and companies approach culture and engagement management. We intend to transform it from a once-a-year difficult project into a straight forward and easy to perform daily or weekly management activity. And we consider our job only well done when measurable results are realized.”
