Accountability Index

The Index explained

The Workplace Accountability Index measures the level of accountability within an organization and how this impacts organizational agility.

It measures Feedback Seeking, Psychological Ownership, Creative Problem Solving, and Taking Effective Action. The report provides a snapshot of an organization’s strengths and areas of opportunity. Breaking down the data by department and level, leaders have a reliable tool to focus their attention and maximize results. The Index evaluates nine areas of workplace fitness, organized by Corporate Mindset and Organizational Agility.
