For the department or organisation, conducting a robust employee engagement survey or customer survey can be a critical factor in understanding how the organisation is viewed by its two most important groups, its people and its customers.

Finally, introducing robust organisational measurement via a KPI scorecard is another area where we help many of our clients.
