SSCA has a variety of proven surveys available that will offer climate information to the manager. Using the weather metaphor, we define climate as the atmosphere of the workplace.

We collect data that represents a complex mixture of feelings, perceptions, expectations, norms, values, policies, and procedures that summarize “the way we do things around here.” This represents the culture of the organization. We are able to capture the complex transactions occurring between the individual and the organization.

Climate is important because it affects the performance of the individual. By assessing the climate, management can act in specific areas to improve performance.

This tool is inexpensive yet proven to help managers find answers to sales growth, efficiency, productivity, and service problems.
