The Gradvert 360° Diagnostic Tool

Posted on May 16, 2018

Why is it important to evaluate your people strategy?

Michaela Reaney, Managing Director, Gradvert writes:


Do you know what key challenges your organisation is facing and the steps you need to take to overcome them?

Is everyone within your organisation working towards the same goals, and do they understand how to play their part in achieving them?

And do you know what the people in your organisation need in order to perform at their best?

At Gradvert our mission is to improve business performance by improving people. We’re a people-focused organisation – we know that people are the key to an organisation’s success and we believe that talking with people at all levels of a business plays a vital part in tackling questions like these.

Diagnostic Tool


That’s why we’ve developed the Gradvert 360° Diagnostic Tool. It’s a tool which allows us to take a truly 360° approach to people development, gathering input and knowledge from all areas of a company and making sure that no areas are overlooked.

When we put the Diagnostic Tool into action, we are able to gather the vital information we need to identify the challenges a business needs to overcome, whether they’re internal or from external sources. It helps us to provide solutions to these challenges and develop a people strategy which is bespoke to the organisation.

So how does it work?

We begin by exploring four key themes which link closely with the Investors in People framework:

  1. 1.  Learning and development
  2. 2.  Business strategy
  3. 3.  Leadership and management, and
  4. 4.  Performance management.

We talk to a cross section of stakeholders and staff at all levels of the organisation so we can identify whether the business strategy is communicated and understood through the organisation, and we gather the insights needed in order to overcome any challenges the organisation is facing.

As we delve deeper into each of the four themes, we begin to identify the issues which may be stopping your business from achieving its goals and stopping your people from fulfilling their potential.

How the Diagnostic Tool might work for you

Businesses can access our Diagnostic Tool as a stand-alone service or it can be used in conjunction with our graduate attraction, training, development and apprenticeship programmes.

So whether you’re focused on attracting the right talent, providing development and progression for graduates, or enhancing the skills of people throughout your organisation, the 360° approach can help you to make sure your organisation and its people can function at their best.
