Assessments & Surveys

Operational Assessment

An Operational Assessment is an efficient way to identify your company's strengths and weaknesses through a comprehensive review of your operations. The assessment gathers information about many different areas and aspects of your company, and then pinpoints areas for improvement and opportunities to capitalize on. Most important, the assessment allows you to "see the big picture" and then put priorities in perspective. With an Operational Assessment, you use time and money cost-effectively as you plan for and implement changes in your company.

The TDO Operational Assessment examines critical business and manufacturing processes, company policies, structure, culture, and key metrics and performances through careful examination of the following organizational areas:

  • General Management
  • Production
  • Human Resources
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Information Systems
  • Engineering & R&D – innovation and new product development
  • Quality
  • Finance & Accounting
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Environmental sustainability of products and processes

Our team has broad experience in manufacturing, marketing, management, HR, new product development, and finance which brings a fresh, unbiased perspective to the business that will help identify areas where there are opportunities to grow and to improve quality, productivity, profitability, and overall competitiveness.

Employee Surveys

Employee Engagement Surveys

 Create a happier and more productive workplace by understanding employee satisfaction. Use employee surveys to check in with employees about their satisfaction with their roles and responsibilities, the work environment, and their experiences with management. Find out what mix of benefits matters most to them, and what skills they wish to acquire as they develop their careers. Employee engagement surveys make it easy to learn more about your employees. Measuring employee engagement with regular polls helps you improve satisfaction, productivity, and retention. The TDO Employee Satisfaction Surveys are based on the standards and guidelines defined by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and are conducted using SurveyMonkey.

Supervisor Preformance Surveys

 Learn what your employees think of their supervisors with this supervisor performance survey. Do employees feel their supervisor is approachable? Is the training effective? How well does the supervisor respond to employee mistakes? By understanding employee perceptions you can make necessary adjustments and provide guidance to your supervising teams. The TDO Supervisor Performance Surveys are based on the standards and guidelines defined by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and are conducted using SurveyMonkey.
