Key Features of the SCT

The SCT is delivered on-line - there is no additional software to install, saving your organisation time and expense.

The improved "Quizard" guides you through the easy set up stages to tailor the survey towards the needs of your organisation.

The questionnaire can be customised to give the look and feel of your organisation - you can incorporate your company logo, include statements of support from management and tailor the language to that used by your workforce.

The SCT allows you to choose up to 9 demographic questions and an additional 6 open questions.

It generates both paper and web-based versions of the questionnaire.

The SCT captures sensitive information - participants respond anonymously.

The software automatically analyses the data to produce a written summary report as well as a series of charts which can be filtered down to further interrogate your findings.

Some example statements include:

The questionnaire is designed so that people rate their responses to the statements on a 1 to 5 point scale from strongly disagree to strongly agree. It is purposely designed to seek the views of all levels of the workforce so that their results can be compared.

Some statements are worded negatively so as not to 'lead' respondents towards one particular viewpoint. For example, "People here are sometimes pressured to work unsafely by their workmates" and "Management only bother to look at health and safety after there has been an accident". The survey comprises of 40 statements. These statements map onto one of 8 factors:
