In additional to surveys, The Crossroads Group is also experienced with the provision of moderated focus groups, to probe both positives and opportunities for improvement as it relates to this key employee stakeholder group.

Providing high-quality service to the internal customer is a precursor to the provision of high-quality service to the external customer, yet often this aspect of service is not evaluated. The Crossroads Group is experienced developing and implementing a survey process which is designed to assess internal customer services drivers such as timelines, quality of service, communication and interaction, and other drivers of service. Departments evaluated include any departments which are serving internal stakeholders. While these vary across organizations, departments evaluated may often include Information Technology, Procurement, Environmental Services, Human Resources, Finance, and other departments. A process is implemented by which only the respondents who have experiences with the respective departments participate in the evaluation process. The result is a process by which internal service behaviors within the organization can be assessed, included in the reporting matrix, and ultimately improved by hearing the ‘voice of the customer’ internally. These measures are valuable as a strategic planning input as well as to support targeted action-plan development and implementation to address identified opportunity areas.
A focus group is a form of qualitative research in which a group of people are asked to share regarding their opinions or perceptions. Focus groups typically involve 8 -12 participants and are facilitated by a moderator who asks questions of the group. Focus groups are preceded by careful participant selection and the establishment of uniform ground rules. Sessions may be recorded or unrecorded and may involve employees, customers, prospective customers, or other population groups.
Focus groups are often a good complement to surveys (pre-survey to aid in the development of a new questionnaire or more commonly post-survey to provide additional qualitative insight around low-scoring areas). Multiple focus group sessions can be conducted when additional insight is required or when multiple population subgroups exist.
The Crossroads Group is available to provide cost-effective professional focus group facilitation services for employees, customers, or prospective customer population segments. Services can be scaled to meet the needs of small or larger organizations.

The Crossroads Group can provide your organization with a very cost-effective custom-designed employee learning needs assessment survey process which includes questionnaire design, survey administration (optional), processing, and reporting.
360 degree feedback surveys (a.k.a. “muli-rater feedback surveys”) are designed to improve the performance of managers and/or employees by allowing them to rate themselves, to be rated by others, and to evaluate and utilize feedback to promote growth and development.
Multi-rator surveys may include feedback from peers, direct reports, subordinates, supervisors, contractors, suppliers, and others inside and outside the department (or organization). The advantage of these surveys is that a more comprehensive and multi-perspective assessment of development opportunities is obtained than would be the case from the traditional performance appraisal. Managers can learn how their peers and subordinates perceive them in areas such as accessibility, decision-making, coaching & feedback, technical skill, communication, performance management of other staff, and key behaviors.
By gaining objective professional insight into their own strengths and weaknesses, and comparing their own self assessment scores to those of others, managers can take actions towards improving their effectiveness. Combined with personal private coaching, management assessments are a valuable tool used towards management development and growth and ulitmately impacting employee performance.

While losing talented employees is difficult, losing these employees without truly understanding why is especially detrimental over the long-run. It is imperative that organizations learn why high-value employees are leaving, so as to help prevent future defections.
As third-party professionals, The Crossroads Group can help obtain candid quantiative and qualitative feedback from employees regarding the reasons for their departure, as well as how their defection may have been possibly prevented.
Whether you need assistance setting up an internal process, or would like for a third-party to cost-effectively manage this process, we can help your organization either design a new process or improve your existing process. Please contact us for a free no-obligation consultation.
