Tools

At The Renova Corporation, we often use assessment tools to pinpoint areas of strength and weakness within your organization. These assessment tools are designed to enhance organizational focus and alignment, assuring leadership, strategic planning and culture are mutually supportive.

Organizational Culture Tools

These web-based survey tools assesses the way organizational practices, leadership actions and specific employee behaviors operate to influence whether your corporate, division or department strategy is supported or impeded. They focus on the way groups of people operate on a day-to-day basis.

  • CulturePulse. One of the most effective means of engaging the hearts and minds of stakeholders in strategic planning or change efforts is to begin from where they are now. Culture Pulse is a customized survey tool based on 35 culture patterns, such as “collaboration” and “process discipline” that quickly captures what’s going on and what needs most attention to prepare your organization for change or new direction.
  • Culture-Strategy Fit Profile. Culture aligned with strategy accelerates execution. Misaligned cultures create growth-impairing obstacles and hobbles strategies from achieving their potential. This broad assessment focuses on the fit between your current culture and strategic value proposition (e.g., emphasis on results, innovation, operational excellence, customer experience) and goals. It also addresses current leadership style and how to leverage culture and leadership to create breakthrough results.
  • Intergenerational Snapshot. This tool examines practices and behaviors and describes the preferred work and management style of a multigenerational staff, from baby-boomers to Millenials. It then assesses the way your organizational culture is operating that supports or hinders these preferences, impacting motivation, retention and performance.
  • Merger and Acquisition Snapshot. When combining organizations, potential “culture clashes” often drain productivity, cost savings and value creation. This tool, comprised of 12 key factors, such as short term vs. long term orientation, assesses culture synergies as well as where tensions are most likely to occur. By understanding where synergy or friction points will occur early in the process, integration plans can be tailored to capitalize on shared strengths while managing reactions.

Employee Surveys

Employee surveys examine different factors such as satisfaction with pay and benefits, employee relations practices, physical work environment, satisfaction with management practices such as performance management and other factors. We have a large library of survey items, dimensions and tools to build a customized employee web-based survey to meet your specific needs.
