C.A. Short Company and Peerless Performance, two industry leaders in employee engagement and culture engineering, have announced the release of the Peerless Study.

Every employer desires to develop and retain high performing associates who are empowered, enthusiastic, and loyal. This doesn't just magically happen, and based on the AON 2017 Trends in Global Employee Engagement Study, employee engagement is decreasing.

The Peerless Study

The Peerless Study was designed to deliver game-changing financial results to companies by helping them to understand the expectations of their associates and customers. Unlike other assessment tools, the online Peerless Study looks at how people feel and how they wish to feel about their status in their organization – such as a sense of purpose, work-life balance, organizational mission, work environment, and management support.

When companies can understand and address employee issues, they can dramatically improve company culture, employee engagement, marketing communications, and sales strategies. What makes the Peerless Study unique is the way it goes further than traditional engagement surveys.

Tina Gunn Weede, Peerless Performance President and CEO, explains that “by identifying precisely the types of emotions people are feeling about various aspects of their work, how they would optimally prefer to feel, and by providing simple steps they can take to personally address those gaps, companies can obtain incomparable aggregate data." She adds, "This data enables us to identify precisely how people think and feel about different parts of the organizations, how they would like to feel, and how those feelings relate to all the various aspects of working for the company."

The data obtained by the study gives precise information, so clients can achieve goals by designing and implementing the best program or creating the right culture to address peoples’ aspirations. The platform has applications for both sales, non-sales employees, and customers.

C.A. Short Company CEO and CFO Jeff Ross, CPA, CRP says, “We are excited to add this new and innovative tool to our arsenal of products and services. The Peerless Study can help organizations improve their engagement by providing the details around what motivates and drives employee to perform. As an engagement company, we believe this tool can help us to solidify our foundation in the marketplace. We will be able to help companies understand their employees at a more holistic level, and we will also be able to support the study findings and offer solutions. Today we see companies come in and survey employees, then hand off the data and say to the client…okay here are our findings, now you find a solution. We are positioning ourselves to fill that void and assist clients from start to finish.”

C.A. Short, in alliance with Peerless Performance, provides new functionality in their core engagement and recognition solutions, such as sales and dealer incentive, travel experiences, event planning, and travel concierge services, motivational surveys, next-generation sales incentives, and more. The partnership allows C.A. Short to provide all aspects of enterprise engagement and culture engineering solutions to their clients.
