Focus groups & Workshops

Working directly with your managers and employees

 

A survey allows to address a wide range of topics in your company and raises quantitative data.  Qualitative instruments such as focus groups or workshops help to emphasize certain topics, provide profound understanding and implement changes.


Focus groups are a qualitative research method that is used to deepen the knowledge of certain aspects and topics. 8 to 12 managers or employees discuss – moderated by an experienced moderator – one of these focus topics. Usually such discussions last for 1,5 h. One can use this instrument before or after an employee survey. Before a survey: to raise information about important topics out of the employees‘ perspective that should be addressed in the survey. After a survey: to discuss improvement areas and specific ideas derived from the survey. Apart from any survey project, focus groups are an efficient and proven  instrument to raise employee opinions and awareness about ongoing projects and change initiatives.

In a company workshops can be used in many different ways. They open up the opportunity to directly work with managers, employees or the members of a project group.
