Vital Signs for Success: Increasing Employee Engagement

70% of organisational change efforts fail, primarily due to the people side. How do you develop the insight to stay in the 30%?

Vital Signs are statistically validated measures that capture key information about the people side of performance. Built on a model with solid business logic as well as sound science, the tools connect people’s perceptions and attitudes with hard business outcomes in an actionable, practical framework.
