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.
The project plan includes the steps necessary to move from the preparation phase to taking action on your baseline survey insights.
After reviewing those initial insights and developing the plan, Pulsely continues to support your ongoing progress with a dashboard, pulse surveys, and integrations with your other data sources as you develop a deeper understanding of how inclusion can improve your company’s business performance and what is getting in the way.
Approaches to a Pulsely project can vary in breadth and depth - from a company that wants a quick survey launch to identify gaps and prioritize next steps to companies that want to bring global leaders on board, establish a D&I governance structure, and develop a strategic plan with regional variations. Some companies may even choose to engage D&I consultants to support their project.
Regardless of your approach, we want to make sure you have the tools and resources you need from us.
