This self-directed learning instrument helps your employees understand and manage their work expectations. Research has shown that people who have clearly defined, well-communicated expectations have better attitudes and enjoy greater job satisfaction than people whose expectations go unspoken or unrealized. And companies that employ satisfied, successful people reap the rewards of increased productivity and reduced turnover.

In addition to providing information about high expectations, the online Individual Report includes a “Gap Analysis” that provides participants with an at-a-glance look at how important each Work Expectations category is to them, and to what degree each is being met.
This helps them quickly pinpoint which Work Expectations categories need the most attention.
The Work Expectations Profile can also include a group report. This Report provides a group summary of Gap Analysis information, which supervisors and managers can use to identify likely sources of dissatisfaction within the group. The organization can use the information to better align the organizational culture with the collective expectations of the group. The report is anonymous, so it can be used in a variety of situations without breaching confidentiality.
