Research and Surveys

Employee Engagement Surveys

We gather feedback from your employees which tells you how they feel about working for you and our consultative approach provides you with analysis and advice which enhances your engagement strategies to drive productivity and reduce turnover.

From surveys to confidential interviews and focus groups, our ability to gain and present independent insight will help you make effective and evidence-based decisions to improve the employee experience.

Job Role Benchmarking

We will create a point of reference against which your roles can be compared and assessed.  We will analyse existing jobs utilising your internal documents and provide consultative feedback to create a matrix of skills, experience and competencies from which we conduct internal and external benchmarking. 

Our ability to interpret your information and gather competitor role intelligence ensures that you can create job roles and job descriptions which underpin business goals and recruitment, development and performance review workstreams.

Organisational Structures

To ensure that your organisation design helps your business to operate efficiently and effectively, we offer a range of expertise to ensure your structure is aligned to your core strategies.

From review of your current structure to conducting labour market and competitor research, we provide a flexible approach to informing your business with data, analysis and advice.

Labour Market, Geographical and Socio-Economic Research

To support decision making concerning relocation, reshaping of the organisation, new sites or recruitment campaigns, we conduct extensive labour market research.

Our ability to gather and analyse data enables business leaders to consider employment, skills, unemployment, socio-economic, education, earnings and people demographics at local, regional and country level to shape long term people and business strategies.

Salary, Benefits and Reward

In order that business leaders create competitive and affordable pay and benefits packages, we provide role specific data and insights which highlight trends at skill, sector, geography and company level providing you with more relevant information than generic salary survey reports.

Our blend of macro and micro data analysis enables you to benchmark more effectively through the utilisation of evidence-based insight relative to your company and the skills you employ. 

Employer Brand Perception

The perception an individual holds about your company will influence their decision to work for it. We help you to understand what your employees and those in the candidate market know and think about working for you.

Our Researchers conduct online and telephone interviews with talent audiences to understand their pre-conceptions of your organisation as an employer, bringing to life what matters to them, what they are looking for in a new employer and what motivates them in life.  Our analysis and independent recommendations include a clear action plan and personas for the key and critical talent you are looking to hire and retain, helping you to be far more accurate and targeted with resourcing and retention activities.

Candidate Experience

Candidates, like employees, should be employer brand advocates for your organisation. The experience they have during a recruitment process not only affects them, but is likely spread though their own networks and online review sites often having a long term impact on how prospective candidates and customers view your business.

Research has suggested that job applicants who do not receive a job offer are 80 percent more likely to apply again if they already had a positive impression of the hiring organisation and regardless of whether they get a job offer, applicants who are satisfied with their candidate experience are more than twice as likely to recommend the hiring organisation to others, compared with those who were not satisfied.

Cogito offer a range of services to measure and manage the experience of applicants to your organisation, offering insight into points of increased and decreased disengagement, coupled with consultative solutions to the issues identified supported by actionable insights.
