Cargill developed an Employee Engagement Survey to measure critical factors in the work environment. Once a year, all 97,000 employees are given the survey. The findings of the survey are then used to identify specific areas for change.
The company’s commitment is reflected in the way it has established a full developmental process, augmenting the work of the annual survey through the addition of different creativity-improving instruments. One of these tools, the Center for Creative Leadership’s KEYS® to Creativity, is helping Cargill assess how it’s doing in terms of promoting or inhibiting creativity and innovation. The organizational assessment tool is being used by the company’s different business units to make positive changes; the biggest project to date has involved some 500 employees at three Cargill facilities in TurkeyDownload Article
