Published Feb 21 2024 10:34 AM 2,741 Views

At Viva Glint, our customers frequently ask us how to ‘think more like a People Scientist’ at key moments in their employee listening lifecycle. For example, how would a People Scientist think about designing a survey or listening strategy? What would they consider when analyzing and interpreting survey results in preparation for a boardroom meeting? Or perhaps, how do they use their skills to influence acting on employee feedback? On February 20th, we were delighted to bring you the first webinar in this series on ‘Think like a People Scientist’ to answer all your questions and more!  


During this webinar, Jennifer Stoll (Principal People Scientist), Jason Thomas (Senior People Scientist) and Ben Tankus (People Science Analyst) shared their collective experiences and tips and tricks on how to approach the analysis of employee survey data. They spoke about the importance of understanding the impact of both internal factors (i.e. organizational priorities, organizational context etc.) and external factors (i.e. economic/industry trends) during the analysis. They also explained how to use the different types of reports available in Viva Glint to gather insights, some basic data science principles to be aware of, and how to use survey comments to aid your understanding of the employee experience.
