Need a quick culture intervention?
A Culture Audit can give you a FAST head start and insights and recommendations you can put into action immediately.
Culture has an impact on everything inside your organization, so even if the time isn’t right for a full-on culture design project, you need to have a good enough understanding of your culture patterns to make sure they are fully supporting your efforts in areas like employee engagement, office moves, or mergers and acquisitions.
Our Culture Audits provide a quick but thorough analysis of your culture through those lenses, and provides a report jam packed with recommendations that will have immediate impact. The process for all three is roughly the same, and takes about 2-3 weeks. We’ll review existing data and documents and conduct two separate discovery meetings with staff to clarify issues and identify key culture patterns, and then deliver the final report.
Need an audit for a different angle? These are fully customizable, just let us know your presenting issue.
Workplace Culture / Employee Engagement Audit
One of the challenging aspects of culture is that it has the power to evolve and change on its own, which means you have a choice: design it with intention, or risk it evolving in ways that get in the way of results and reduce employee engagement.
The first step in good culture design is getting a clear picture of “what is.” The easiest way to start is with our Workplace Culture Audit / Employee Engagement Audit—a quick and focused analysis of the core patterns inside your culture that could be interfering with engagement and success, including concrete recommendations for how to start addressing the issues in ways that will get you results.
Office Design and Culture Audit
You’re renovating your office space or moving to a new building. You want to build fresh new collaborative spaces, or mix up where senior executives sit in comparison to the rest of the staff, or change how departments are separated in the space, or add in other culture-related considerations to your new office layout. But where to start? Culture eats design for breakfast, so before you commit to a design solution, you’ll want to first understand how your culture works and what makes it successful, and then design with that in mind. In our Office Design & Culture Audit, we provide a quick and focused analysis of the core patterns inside your culture that can be impacted the most positively by office design, and then we give you concrete recommendations for folding those insights into your design work and strengthening your culture in the process.
Culture Compatibility Audit for Mergers & Acquisitions
When mergers or acquisitions fail to produce the value everyone expected, culture is frequently to blame. The problem is that traditional culture surveys miss the key culture patterns that will eventually erode or destroy the value of the merger. Our Culture Compatibility Audit identifies patterns that lie beneath the surface, and our audit process provides a quick and focused analysis and comparison of the culture patterns inside both organizations in the deal, and then highlights the areas of both similarities and differences that could have the biggest impact on integration. We also give you concrete recommendations for folding those insights into the integration process and strengthening both cultures in the process. (This audit process usually takes 3-5 weeks, as opposed to our shorter audits).
