Highlights reports1

Highlights reports

  • Top 6 statements that have the maximum impact for your team and can increase your engagement score.

  • Predicts expected improvement if action is taken

  • Explore these statements in more detail with your team to have a better understanding of their responses and their ideas/solutions that can form part of your action plan.

  • Factors

  • Factor analysis categorises each statement into a theme

  • Your % positive score may be compared here to the average % positive of the area you belong to.

    • Benchmarks will only be used in sub-level highlight reports ie. % positive scores for a division will be benchmarked against % positive scores for theagency.

  • Allows you to see your full results for each item under their respective workplace factor.

What is the data saying

What is the data saying?

Focus on the questions within the driver factors, not just the lowest scoring questions. The drivers have the biggest impact on engagement, and subsequently on organisational performance.

Remember the importance of the agency context…

Negatively worded questions

Negatively worded questions

  • Some questions are negatively worded i.e. strongly agree/ agree indicates a negative response

  • Such questions have been coded such that the % positive score represents the % of respondents who disagree or strongly disagree

  • Negatively worded questions are indicated with an * in the reporting outputs

  • Example Question:

  • * I intend to leave my organisation within the next 12 months

Interpreting results

Interpreting Results

  • The majority of questions use a 5-point scale. Responses are collapsed into 3 categories.

  • Example Question: My job makes good use of my skills and abilities

  • Be sure to look at the complete distribution of responses.

  • Mixed result — half positive, but most of the remaining neutral

  • Warning sign — half positive, large % negative

  • Additional to the opening dashboard, there are five different ways of viewing the survey results in the highlights tool.

  • These will be detailed in the following slides.

Results full results

Results: Full results

  • This is the initial view for ‘Full results’. This shows the % Positive score for all questions (the percentage of respondents that either ‘Agreed’ or ‘Strongly agreed’).

  • It also shows the results for all five options for each question.

  • Sometimes high levels of ‘Neither agree nor disagree’ or disagreement can help analysis of certain questions.

Results full results options

Results: Full results - Options

  • To get specific data, the user can hover their cursor over one of the 5 response options.

  • This can be helpful when percentages are very small, as there is sometimes not enough space for the figure.

  • Furthermore, this view can be expanded by clicking ‘Options’.

Results full results options questions

Results: Full results – Options: Questions

  • You can choose to select all questions or a particular section.

  • Under ‘Options’, the user can determine which questions are displayed and the types of responses shown (e.g., can show neutral or negative if preferred).

Reporting tools

Results: Full results – Options: Benchmark variance

  • An important reference point in comparing survey results is the comparison with Benchmark scores. These are average % positive scores from specific groups of organisations.

  • The benchmark variance shows how the results compare with the selected benchmark.

  • Variances in a shade of green are 5 or more % points favourable whereas those in a shade of red are 5 or more % points lower than the benchmark score.

Comparisons compare work areas

Comparisons: Compare work areas

  • The ‘Compare work areas’ view exhibits comparisons between areas. The green and red shading corresponds with the overall % positive. This is an effective way of quickly seeing which areas of the organisation answered questions more positively than others.

  • The comparison unit can be changed by clicking the ‘Change’ button.

Comparisons comparison units

Comparisons: Comparison units

  • The pop up box allows you to add particular areas of the hierarchy to compare against. There is the capability to bulk add and also bulk remove.

Demographics data breakdown

Demographics: Data breakdown

  • This view shows how questions were answered by different demographic groups. The ‘Options’ tab is important for this view to specify which demographic comparisons displayed.

  • The red/green shading can be moderated by ‘variance highlighting’

Reporting tools

All Questions:

  • ‘All questions’ portrays a cross tabulation representation of all results. This can be useful if a user wishes to export the data into an Excel spreadsheet (e.g. To produce their own charts). Please note that data will only be available for groups with 10 or more responses.



  • All of the data that is displayed in the highlights tool can be exported into either Adobe PDF or an Excel spreadsheet. This can be useful for printing or sending survey results.

  • By clicking ‘Export’, the adjacent window opens. Here, users can follow simple instructions to transfer information from highlights into these other formats.
