During 2018 Simply Superior Consulting worked with VAST, an already excellent company, on four key areas: Culture, Teams. Commitment, and Engagement. On a recent Incite Employee Engagement Survey two of the many related questions were:
“There is a strong spirit of teamwork and cooperation within my department.” Positive increase of .5 on a 5-point scale.
“I feel valued and recognized for the work that I do.” Positive increase of .8 on a 5-point scale.
Overall: All 44 survey items experienced a positive increase. The cumulative agency score had a .5 increase on a 5-point scale- one of the highest in the industry.
