What survey services do we provide?

Aspire can provide the following survey services:

  • Online 360 appraisal system
  • Hosting of online feedback surveys

What is an Aspire survey?

Aspire surveys are on-line questionnaires that have been designed to collect information / data from a range of people. We work in partnership with our clients to establish what they would like to find out and then design a questionnaire accordingly. Surveys may be used for a range of purposes some include:

  • Client/customer satisfaction
  • Employee satisfaction
  • Training needs
  • Workshop needs
  • Performance appraisals (please see Aspire 360 below)

What happens to the information that I provide?

When you complete an Aspire survey the information is stored in a secure database for us to analyse. Depending on the confidentiality arrangements that we have with the client - we can either give the client:

  • the raw data in a database format
  • anonymised data in a database format
  • analysed data in a graphical / tabular format
  • analysed data that is in a graphical / tabular format that has also been interpreted in a report format

Can you help me to design a survey?

We are able to provide advice on how to design surveys and which statistical procedures to use to analyse them. We have a vast experience of conducting qualitative and quantitative surveys and using both qualitative and quantitative analytical techniques. We can provide you with:

  • Design of 360 appraisal and feedback surveys
  • Analysis of surveys
  • Administration of paper based surveys
  • Interpretation of survey data
  • Reports incorporating survey data

What is a 360 degree appraisal?

A 360 degree appraisal provides valuable feedback to people on their work-based performance. Typically, a person is given feedback by their peers, their managers and their direct reports so that a full "360" feedback of performance is obtained. The person also rates their own performance and this is then compared and contrasted to how others perceive them. 360 degree appraisal feedback provides a valuable development tool to enhance teamwork and personal perforance.

How does this online 360 system work?

Typically, a company or organisation will appoint their "Administrator" who is responsible for defining which users should be given 360 feedback. These users are added to the system by the Administrator, who then defines which users will give feedback to whom. The individual users will then login to the system and fill in their own online survey. Reports are then automatically generated which can be downloaded by the Administrator.

Can I create my own users on the 360 appraisal system?

Absolutely. You can manage your own users, groups and reports online. The system is fully automated.

Will the system automatically generate 360 reports for me?

Yes! A PDF report will be created automatically.

Can i download the raw data and resulting graphs from the 360 appraisal so I can produce my own reports?

Yes!

I already have a 360 survey. Can I upload this to the system, so that I can user my own survey?

Yes! You can create your own survey, which users will subsequently fill in online. Providing you are the copyright holder of your own survey, you can do with it as you please.

I don't have a 360 survey. Will you provide one for me?

Yes. A generic leadership survey is available for your use. However you should consider that 360 appraisal surveys are typically job/role/context specific. That is to say, a bespoke survey designed to give feedback on the competencies that are important for your team/organisation should be better predictors of performance. A generic survey will provide a good starting point, but you should be aware that it is not specifically tailored to your needs.

I would like to create a 360 appraisal survey which is tailored to the roles in my organisation. Can you help me with this?

Yes. Our qualified and chartered occupational psychologists can work with you to create a 360 appraisal survey that is specific to your needs. We have vast experience in designing surveys, and can work with you as much (or as little) as you need. Please contact us for more information about how we can help you to create customised surveys.

Where are your business psychologists based?

We are UK based, in Manchester and Cheshire. However our team can come to your organisation wherever it is based - UK or international

I have a survey from another company, can I upload this survey to your system?

Depends. If you have the written permission from the survey publisher and/or copyright holder to reproduce their survey online, then we allow you to do this. It is not possible to reproduce a copyrighted, third-party survey on this system without written permission from the copyright holder.

How much does it cost?

The basic costs for the 360 appraisal system start from USD $46. For bespoke 360 survey development, or hosting and development of other forms of online surveys, please Contact Us
