Green Dot for the Trades
Given the human and organizational cost of workplace harassment, Alteristic is unwavering in its commitment to partner with clients in the development of an evaluation plan that measures progress allowing for course corrections and ensuring the maximum impact for each GDT implementation.
Alteristic works with each client to create a program evaluation plan that provides a detailed, descriptive, and nuanced understanding of the impact of their GDT implementation. Data is collected that provides information and feedback on effectiveness, and on the outcomes prioritized by leadership, key-stakeholders, public or private owners, and/or general contractors. Alteristic customizes evaluation tools, collects and analyzes data, and provides reports and presentations on the findings, implications, and next steps.
Evaluation can measure progress, effectiveness, and impact in many important areas. Areas of interest that can be better understood in the short-term include employee satisfaction with training experience, participants’ intentions to act, increases in knowledge, and changes in attitudes. With evaluation plans that are longer in duration, additional areas of impact can be assessed. These include actual changes in employee behavior across time, employee perceptions of workplace climate, actual changes in workplace climate, and how long new behaviors are sustained.
Depending on client capacity and access to employees, Evaluation Plans can include several tools.
Pre-Workshop Surveys are distributed to participants prior to workshops, and they allow us to see if there are changes in participant behaviors, attitudes, and knowledge because of their training.
Post-Workshop Surveys are completed immediately after a workshop. These provide information about participant satisfaction, gains in knowledge, their intention to act, and their confidence in using new skills.
Follow-Up Surveys are distributed at a later time determined in partnership with the client (e.g., 3 months, 6 months, 12 months). They provide data on actual behavior changes over time, such as how often employees intervene or engage in positive behaviors. Follow-up surveys can also provide information about how long new behaviors are sustained over time.
Focus Groups (conversations with a small group of workshop participants) can provide more detailed insights into the impact and experiences of workshop participants.
