Pulsely offers detailed Implementation Guides as well as templates you will need during your project. Please see the relevant implementation guide for each step of the way.
Take a look at the Communications Templates, in particular. This is often the most overwhelming piece and we have taken the pain away. You don’t have to worry about which communications are needed or how to structure the messages; we will walk you through the process and provide templates for each communication needed, step-by-step.



Get Leadership on Board

Getting your senior leaders involved with the Pulsely project is critical for success. Even if you don't require senior leader approval to launch Pulsely, executive championship is necessary for the organization to prioritize this project and the resulting action plan.



Host your Internal Launch Meeting

In addition to engaging your leadership team, you will want to engage stakeholders from across your organization. This level of involvement is critical for broader change management as well as building support more broadly across the company. In essence, you are trying to create a steering committee for this project but also to build momentum for your DEI actions that result.



Build your Project Plan

You have a lot on your plate already and you turned to Pulsely for a simplified solution. The implementation of Pulsely is straightforward but will require support from your team internally. We have built this project plan to help you anticipate what resources are needed on your end and to enable you to keep track of the tasks required each week to manage your timeline.



Privacy Policy

Pulsely is a DEI data and analytics tool that reveals actionable insights for organizations in order to create a more inclusive workplace for all. Pulsely will use surveys to collect employee responses and then interpret the data to provide the organization with insights based on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion metrics. These insights will guide the organization in addressing employee challenges that impact business performance. Pulsely is committed to ensuring the anonymity of employee responses, only disclosing data when there is no risk of employee identification, either explicity or implicitly.



Build a Communications Plan

The foundation of an inclusive organization is a culture of trust and transparency. And, depending on your company culture, it doesn’t hurt to have a little fun as well. Our communications guide will incorporate all the information that employees need to understand how Pulsely impacts them personally, as well as how this project supports your business performance.



Data Decisions

In this step, we ask that you and your internal team discuss what you hope to determine with this survey and whether the open-end and demographic questions included will provide the insights you need.

Pulsely Inclusion Framework

Pulsely’s Inclusion survey measures employee agreement/disagreement with statements about their own workplace experiences as well as attitudes and beliefs regarding inclusion. These statements are based on our scientific framework that relies on the latest Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) research.
