Section 1: Launching the Health Check #

The first step in the action cycle is launching a diagnostic survey like the Health Check or another strategic survey, which provides valuable insights into your company’s current state and identifies areas that need improvement. As soon as you launch the survey, you can view the results on your dashboard, giving you immediate visibility into your organization’s performance. You can also track progress and receive updates on how your employees are responding to the survey by checking our news section. These updates provide early insight into the response rate of your surveys, as well as other relevant information.

Section 2: Analyzing the Data #

Once the majority of employee survey responses have been submitted, typically after two weeks, it’s time to dig into the data. In the atwork suite, you can explore the dashboard to see how your company is performing overall and how different segments, such as departments or different age groups score relative to the overall benchmark. The platform will also provide targeted recommendations for the areas that require the most attention. By analyzing the data, you can gain valuable insights into your company’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as the specific areas that require attention. Armed with this knowledge, you can take informed actions to drive progress and improve your company’s performance.
