Business Assessment

Using proprietary employee surveys and data analysis, Envision Group’s custom Business Assessment Tool can help you troubleshoot and resolve the performance issues in your organization. Most problems are caused not by non-performing individuals but by circumstances in the business environment that may not even be visible to you.

Think about the following questions about information, processes and capabilities, and rewards and consequences, in both the environment, and at the individual level. They represent the information we collect, analyze and report on to help you resolve performance issues.
