Tools Score

Tools score

The Qlearsite Tools Score can help you understand how gaps in your organisation’s hardware, systems and processes are affecting employees.

The Tools attribute lies at the intersection of the Value Driver, Enablement and the Organisation Lever, Process.

The Tools Score is based on the responses to the statement:

Our tools, systems and processes make my working life easier and set me up for success.

Seven out of 10 employees across all industries say they don’t have the right tools to work effectively. In the Organisational Fitness framework, Tools is typically among the lowest scoring indicators. While a low score in this area is something that should be addressed, Qlearsite recommends that the trend of the Tools Score over time is more critical. Are there any factors or circumstances that would lead to a big drop in the Tools Score from data collection event to data collection event? 

If you score high in Tools

Your organisation is special! Qlearsite’s industry benchmarks indicate that Tools is among the lowest scoring indicators across all industries. 

You may want to

  • Check the Themes that are most prominently correlated to this high-scoring attribute
  • Capture some comments that capture how your organisation is responding positively to this attribute.

If you score low in Tools

If you score low in Tools, it could indicate impediments in your organisation that are preventing success. 

Due to the fact that Tools is regularly scored low, by nearly every industry segment, Qlearsite recommends that other indicators might be more productive to address, even if the Tools score is lower. For example, Drivers of Engagement might point to more actionable insights than the Tools score.

That said, tracking the Tools score can provide valuable feedback informing your overall Organisational Health. Monitoring the overall trend of the Tools dimension is more important than the snapshot score.
