A Voice Project colleague and I recently completed the Half Ironman triathlon at Port Macquarie (a full Ironman triathlon is 3.8km swim, 180km bike and 42.2km run, so we took the easy option and just did half those distances). This was Seb's first triathlon, and I've completed a handful of half and full Ironman events over the last 18 months.
In using employee and customer surveys, and indeed in many fields of research, you may have the need to interpret statistical correlations. What does this mean? In its simplest form, a correlation refers to the connection between two or more things. This connection can be stronger or weaker depending on what we are talking about.
All other things being equal, would you be more engaged working for an organisation that is performing well, or in an organisation that is underperforming?
When implementing Voice Project's employee engagement surveys we often get asked about the return on investment from higher employee engagement. So I've pulled together some of the stats from our research and research from others. Yes, this inevitably involves some maths.
Voice Project seeks to survey our own clients every six months. Once again, we invited our recent clients to provide feedback about their experience working with us. We are grateful that we continue to receive positive feedback from our clients, including:
Voice Project has been working with clients in the aged care sector for over 10 years. This year we had the pleasure and privilege of sponsoring the 2013 ACS State Award for Exceptional Human Resource Management.

The Voice Project Team,
As part of Voice Project’s June 2012 breakfast event, Dr Peter Langford presented a slightly tongue-in-cheek exploration of employee involvement by taking the audience through a guide to ‘Dictatorship for Dummies’
