Event Description
HR professionals are being challenged to develop strategic metrics that help senior executive teams make important decisions. Based on research in 2000+ organizations featured in the book, Hidden Drivers of Success: Leveraging Employee Insights for Strategic Advantage (SHRM 2013), this session will discuss the key reasons why traditional surveys are failing, what smart companies are doing differently to move beyond one-dimensional "engagement" type surveys, how strategic HR leaders are gaining executive support, and how to measure the impact of your survey efforts. The new strategic surveys are adding value in a wide number of areas: helping with recruiting, onboarding, performance management, training evaluation, leader development, retention of top performers, employer branding and many more talent decisions.

Learning Points

Traditional employee surveys are no longer sufficient to help organizations remain talent competitive-learn how to overcome the shortcomings

Learn how surveys of employees can be used to enhance decisions about talent acquisition, onboarding, performance management, leader development, retention, and risk management

Learn how employees, if measured properly, can provide incredible insights regarding your customers, strategy, suppliers, values, and talent management effectiveness
