Extensive research

Extensive research forms the foundation of our world-leading employee engagement system. Our employee engagement products & services constantly evolve to establish a robust, reliable engagement system for today and tomorrow. What’s more, we can integrate with your existing solutions to jump start programs that have slowed and need a refresh.

Spark also offers certification to bring your engagement program in-house and we provide leadership development programs to build organization-wide passion team by team.

4 distinct program elements

Engagement is perceived as the responsibility of the executives or management team with individuals “waiting to see” how leaders are going to fix things.
EACH person who participates in the Spark survey receives a confidential, personalized report which leads to:
  • Individual accountability. Everyone gains the knowledge and tools to work together to make their own work experience better, their team’s work life better, as well as the overall culture.
  • Context. The profiles explain why someone feels the way he or she does. Our algorithm provides a description of the current state of engagement and why one feels this way.
  • Action Ready. We identify the engagement drivers that are strengths and the blockers; and, give specific ideas to action within the individual’s control.
Commitments, historical data, contractual obligations or familiarity prevent creating a “stacked” program -- leveraging the best of multiple vendors to increase efficacy.
We create customized solutions to complement your current programing.
  • We offer the “missing pieces”.
  • Our personalized, individual reports close the gap between individual needs and collective reporting.
  • Our validated and proprietary 8-State Engagement Model allows individuals or groups to situate themselves in their work and to self-coach.
Pages and pages of data, without a clear message and direction, leads many executives and managers into “analysis paralysis”, resulting in non-action or cumbersome engagement programs, delaying impact.
Our reports contain algorithms that highlight the 3 most relevant strengths and 3 most critical improvement areas. Focus creates traction and impact giving you an ROI.
  • We are fully automated, and reports are available immediately after the survey closes, so clients can get to work right away on making a difference.
Engagement surveys are comprised of unrelated, random questions that don’t “add up” to a conclusion, an overall picture of the organization, or an actionable direction; therefore, ROI is compromised.
With over 20 years of applied global research and 10,000 users, Spark delivers relevant insight and benchmarks. We are 100% science based.
    Why Science Matters:
  • We measure the actual emotional reality of your employees and not simply their opinions.
  • Science eliminates the guesswork: the questions to ask are known (30 is all you need!); and, the data that results is reliable.
  • You will be able to direct your time, efforts and resources on areas that will make the greatest difference and result in ROI.

  • We start with the individual and build individual, team and organizational profiles. Everyone who participates in the survey gets a personalized report. It’s comprehensive and a powerful tool for self-managing passion at work. We also have team and group reports so accountability is shared at all levels, including the individual. All reports identify the 3 critical action items.
  • We are fully automated and produce reports within hours of the survey closing, including action plans; so, you can get to work right away on making a difference. Our survey only takes 6-8 minutes, reports are available immediately, and the science behind the survey allows us to provide direction for action based on one-pager group scorecards. There is no analysis paralysis or the need to “figure out what to do”. It’s all there in the reporting in an easy-to-understand way.
  • Retention and engagement are intimately related.
  • For some employees, it might be too late to retain them. There is a point of no return.
  • Once we have your employee data, we can launch a survey immediately and get your reports to you within hours of the survey closing. PLUS, we can tell you what to address first.
