Testing the “happiness” of the summ.it team!

01/07/2014 Filed under HR

summ.it carried out its first ever Employee Attitude Survey earlier this year – we are pleased to say with some surprising results…..
The online survey sent employees an e-mail inviting them to answer a series of questions about their real life experience of working at summ.it in terms of how they felt the Company was managed, their team and themselves.
All of the responses where completely anonymous giving the team reassurance that they could be as open and honest as possible.
The Partners really did want a “warts and all” view of what life was like at summ.it and, more importantly, how we could do things better – you hear lots of Company’s saying that their people are their greatest asset, but at summ.it this is something that is absolutely core to everything that we do.
The much awaited results were presented back in bright, colourful and easy to understand graphs making the whole process enjoyable and easy to spot key “take home” messages.
There was a lot of quality information gathered with some of the highlights being;

  • 95% of staff believing that summ.it had a strong management team
  • 80% of staff knowing summ.it’s future vision
  • 75% of staff saying that positive changes were made
  • 80% of staff feeling cared for and looked after; and
  • 85% of staff would strongly recommend a friend to work at summ.it


The survey was hugely insightful with positive comments being made about the addition of the HR and Training team to summ.it, not only for staff but also for clients – as such, the decision was made to keep up momentum on the positive impact of this by introducing a more effective appraisal process and having quarterly team training sessions to build team spirit and give vital development to staff on things such as communication, motivation and delegation.
