Organisational Diagnosis should be a collaborative process, involving both company staff and external consultants (such as organisational psychologists) in collecting pertinent data, analysing them and drawing conclusions for action planning and intervention. Diagnosis may be aimed at discovering the causes of specific problems, or it may be directed at assessing the organisations or department to find areas for future development and devise interventions for solving problems and improving organisation effectiveness.

OrgPsych provides diagnosis via Voice-Staff Climate Survey, structured interviews or assessment tools.

Voice-Staff Climate Survey

Voice-Staff Climate Survey (Voice) is a product of the Voice Project Pty Ltd which is a research and consulting practice, directed by Dr Peter Langford, based in the Department of Psychology, Macquarie University. Voice Project Pty Ltd has a close and ongoing alliance with OrgPsych. The Voice Project is dedicated to using organisational surveys to give critical stakeholders a voice and improve organisational diagnosis and decision-making. The focus of much of the work of Voice Project team is diagnosing organisational culture and climate, leadership, employee engagement, and customer/client loyalty.

Voice enables organisations to identify strengths and weaknesses of their people management practices. Some examples of these practices include leadership, supervision, communication and cooperation, teamwork, organisational performance and job satisfaction. Management and staff are provided with succinct reports indicating areas for improvement in the short term ‘Quick Wins’ and areas for improvement in the longer term.

Voice Benefits

Examples of some of the benefits gained by existing clients include reduction in staff turnover, improved communication and cooperation, implementation of continuous improvement and employee assistance programmes, improved supervisory and management practices, improved team work and cost reduction.
