VS: The Drivers of Performance
The Vital Signs (VS) tools are statistically validated measures that capture key information about the people side of performance. Built on a model with solid business logic as well as sound science, the tools connect people’s perceptions and attitudes with hard business outcomes in an actionable, practical framework.
What makes VS so powerful?
While there are many measures of superficial behaviors or “satisfaction,” they don’t get to what really drives people. Based on a decade a research with real-world organizations, Vital Signs is the perfect blend of simplicity and power.
