Our IEC DEI Survey is the cornerstone of our assessment services. Our survey was designed to provide organizations the comprehensive data they need to lay a strong foundation for their DEI efforts. Our survey has been used to launch the DEI programs of scores of public and private-sector organizations.

Our Survey Model

IEC DEI subscalesThe IEC DEI Survey solicits a broad spectrum of information from employees and managers across 14 subscales (i.e. a group of questions that, together, assess an issue).

To develop the instrument we conducted research on DEI and on ways to affect change in organizational cultures. We used the information gathered to develop the questions that comprise the subscales. All of the questions and subscales were reliability tested to ensure they accurately measured the identified issue.

The result was a comprehensive survey that is efficient, cost effective and above all, accurate.
