Focus Groups – Delivering Instant Results

simonbryan  by Simon on Aug 31, 2011

If it’s part (or all) of your job to conduct focus groups, monitor participant responses and analyze their results, you know how time consuming they can be. Sometimes it can seem like you're not getting enough or the right information. And even if you manage to collect all of the information you want; distilling the responses to find the true meaning can be a challenge.

Your end of year HR department meeting is an important time for the entire department to catch up and recap how the year as a whole went. It may involve surveys, comparing goals and objectives with outcomes, brainstorming ideas for the upcoming year, redefining evaluation procedures and hopefully a few fun activities. With only one day to fit in a review of the past year and to make important decisions or changes for the upcoming year, it’s imperative to make the most out of your time. Running efficient sessions, hearing what your employees have to say and adding a little fun can make all the difference.
