I am asked about NPS (Net Promoter Score) on a pretty regular basis. Sometimes a company already uses NPS and wants to know how we will incorporate it into the program we are developing for them. In other cases, a client has heard about NPS but isn’t sure whether it is the measure they should rely on to guide their business. Still other clients are familiar with NPS but would like my assistance communicating to internal clients the way it should be used. After years of getting these questions, I decided to prepare a short overview of NPS, highlighting both its key advantages and discussing the shortcomings or caveats to keep in mind.

Managers tend to take a template, one-size-fits-all approach when trying to enhance employee commitment, regardless of an employee’s underlying motivation and work attitudes. Managers take this approach either because they feel it’s important to “treat all employees equally”, or they assume it’s not practical to develop a HR management system tailored to create conditions that will enhance commitment among different types of employees. In this whitepaper we present a model that identifies unique triggers that enhance commitment among different employee segments.

Innovation doesn’t need to be a quest for ground-breaking ideas. Companies gain advantages when they inspire ‘everyday innovation’ among employees.  So what are the conditions that foster everyday innovation and how can companies can measure their progress toward creating these conditions?

Marketers have long used segmentation to better understand, reach and serve their customers. The idea is to divide the market into useful groups, identify your target segments, and tailor the products, prices, service experience, channels and messaging to resonate with those segments. However, marketers are increasingly finding that traditional ways of segmenting consumers – by demographics, behaviours, projected value or psychographics – have grown less useful over time. Two factors are to blame:  Consumers are becoming less fixed in terms of who they are and how they behave, and digital marketers are increasingly able to micro-target consumers as individuals rather than as groups.

Our clients often look to us to come up with new ways to keep surveys fresh and engaging – perhaps even something that’s fun to do (!) Enter gamification: the addition of game-like techniques to present questions in different ways that are more fun for your respondents. It may seem like the ‘power-up’ your survey needs, but as we’ll outline in this brief overview, it comes with a lot of risks. If you’re looking to adding a little fun and games to your survey, here are a few things to keep in mind.
