Knowledge shared is knowledge gained


We work with businesses across all types of industries to assess and understand where each organisation needs to become aligned in order to execute its strategy, and how employee potential can be unlocked to drive performance.  We then work with our clients to take action by driving change from each level of their organisation.


We start at the overall organisation level – and identify where strategy, culture, and people are misaligned.  We then work with leadership to ensure they see critical issues more clearly, and address them in a way that strengthens culture and drives lasting performance.  We also provide front-line managers with the guidance, tools, and resources they need to sustain employee motivation and unlock the potential of their people.  And we enable HR to support those efforts and drive positive change.

In over fourty years of work, we have compiled a robust normative database, leading tools and technology, and a profound understanding of how to develop and execute successful survey research programs. By providing innovative, forward-thinking recommendations geared toward leveraging talent – while aligning these efforts with business strategy – Mercer | Sirota™ can help build a partnership-driven culture, an enthusiastic workforce, and effective leadership and management practices that will drive performance.

The 3 Mercer | Sirota™ tools for success – Assess, Understand and Act

Assess: Organisational Surveys


Making decisions about your organisation and people without proper data often leads to negative results.  The fact-based insight gained from an accurate survey research assessment of organisational effectiveness is essential to successful human capital management.

For over 40 years we have focused exclusively on developing cutting edge organisational development surveys that enable our clients to take right actions to improve their business performance by better understanding the experience of their people.

Survey Solutions

Our survey research offerings go beyond providing powerful insights – they offer solid empirical evidence for action:

  • Employee Engagement Surveys
  • Candidate, Onboarding & Exit (Employee Lifecycle Research) Surveys
  • Leadership 360 Surveys (360 Degree Feedback Assessments)
  • Culture Assessments
  • Merger & Acquisition
  • Panel and Target Groups (e.g., HiPO)
  • Internal Customer Assessment
  • Other targeted survey research, as desired


Organisation surveys

Understand: Analytics and Reporting


For c-suite executives and other leaders with large organisations, we typically develop a detailed Executive Analysis Presentation to illustrate the major themes and trends in the data and guide them to where action can be taken. We use an Integrative Survey Data Analysis process, partnering with your team from the get-go to ensure that the executive report is:

•  Tailored to current business conditions and organisational dynamics,
•  Tells the most insightful story from the data collected, and
•  Provides the most actionable insights.


For managers at all levels in the organisation, Sirota’s Reporting Suite represents a new generation of integrated survey reporting. Manager Reports offer simple, action-oriented displays which quickly answer your managers’ questions about how they are doing, and which areas of the survey results they should focus on.  All reports include our normative data at no extra cost, and can be customized to display survey results in a variety of ways; for example, to best align with and reinforce key findings and insights from the overall executive reports.


We distribute reports through Manager Central a portal that allows managers to directly access their survey reports plus training and reference materials to help them interpret their results and communicate to their teams.  This “one-stop-shop” site also offers best practices guides and action planning tools to help the team take action on survey results.


We strive to deliver clear and profound insights that compel your managers to take meaningful action on their survey results.  We work to deliver results in a timely manner: we produce a “top line” report for review by your internal survey team and other key stakeholders; and shortly after, all other reports are ready for delivery to the top executives and front line managers.

Sirota offers a variety of Post-Survey Action Training and Coaching:
–  Training and tools for Managers,

–  Facilitation Workshops and Coaching for intact teams.


We also provide the most innovative Action Tracking Tools and Best Practices Database.

Our approach is to provide each audience – senior leaders, managers, and HR – with the guidance and tools necessary to improve their organisations and unlock the potential of people.  We work alongside senior leaders to uncover the optimum policies and practices to achieve and maintain high-levels of business performance.  And we assist and align front-line managers and HR teams to create and conduct actions at a local-level, to achieve meaningful organisational results.
