  • CONFIDENTIALITY - Leading Edge prioritizes your employees' confidentiality and your organization's confidentiality. To ensure that your staff feels safe to be as honest as possible we have created safeguards to protect the identity of all respondents. No one at your organization or at Leading Edge will ever see individual responses. At no point during the survey will your organization or the Leading Edge team know who has taken the survey and who has not. The survey system will automatically send reminders to people who have not completed the survey, but no one at Leading Edge or at your organization will know the identities of those people. Data from groups will only be reported out when 4 or more people from that "group" have completed the survey. Leading Edge will never share the results from your organization with anyone beyond the people whose access you authorize. Culture Amp holds itself to the highest standards when it comes to protecting the respondents. 
What Leading Edge requests from participating organizations:
  • Commitment - Leading Edge expects that organizational leadership, including the most senior leader, will be committed to ensuring the success of the survey administration, will encourage participation and will assign at least one person to be the liaison (Survey Lead) between Leading Edge and your organization.
  • Action - Leading Edge is invested in helping organizations become even better places to work. In exchange, Leading Edge requests that organizations take their data seriously and use it to help identify areas of strength and opportunity in order to prioritize action steps. 
  • Technical requirements testing - In order to administer the survey, employees will need access to a unique email address. This is mandatory in order to administer the survey. Organizations will work with their IT teams/providers to help avoid bounced emails, spamming and lost links. Culture Amp will provide the IT requirements to ensure email communications inviting employees to complete the survey are not treated as junk.
  • HR Information Sheet - Organizations will provide Leading Edge with employee information including email address, start date, and other data that may be used to aggregate results. The Human Resource Information Sheet (HRIS) – due by April 18, 2019 - will be filled out and sent to Leading Edge in a timely manner following a training and a discussion on how to get the most out of your HR data.
