SHAPE enables easy understanding of complex employee data. We’ve developed features that guide your employees, managers and executives through a unique and illuminating data journey. Based on scientific insights, SHAPE details everything your company needs to measure your people performance.Get started
12 Explorers to explore
Starting with the “big picture”, the overall SHAPE score provides a single figure which represents how well the conditions at an organisation support a high-performance workforce. This score is subdivided into 4 Organisational Areas – The Individual, The People, The Facilities and The Company. These encompass our famous Explorers, the 12 critical elements any company needs to exploit in order to claim leadership status.
The DAAP matrix
Our simple mantra; “turn up and perform”, is encapsulated in the DAAP matrix - the Desire and Ability to Attend and Perform. All SHAPE Explorers, and all the questions within them, impact one or more areas of DAAP.
SHAPE combines various health and lifestyle measures to determine how an employee’s “Health Age” compares with their actual age. It’s best not to have a workforce with an average age of 40 that look more like 50 from a health perspective! Health Age is the perfect solution for your workplace health and wellbeing program.
SHAPE combines data from across various Explorers in order to provide greater insights into factors that impact employee performance at the individual level
Similar to Individual Insights, but focused at company level analytics. Examples include: What are our worst health risks? How is our “Life balance”? Are we hiring the best talent? How valued do our employees feel? How safe do our employees feel? Chronic health conditions and presenteeism etc.
Supporting the psycho-emotional wellbeing of employees is the greatest challenge facing employers over the coming decade. Mental health is already the leading preventable risk and is growing. SHAPE combines the globally validated, Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scales (DASS) with an appraisal of the emotional, cognitive, behavioural and physical consequences of poor psychological health. This allows a precise, scientifically valid assessment of the mental health profile from individual to overall company. In addition, the "sources of stress" appraisal identifies the root causes of the problem, providing invaluable data to fine tune interventions and deliver optimal results.
Psychological Safety Climate (PSC-22)
The PSC-22 takes over twenty results across 8 of the 12 Explorers and combines them into a single measure to indicate whether an employee’s psycho-emotional state is likely to be impacted, positively or negatively, by various work-related factors. The PSC-22 therefore reflects the degree to which the workplace "strains" the individual psychological coping resources of employees.
The Individual in the Environment (IxE)
Whereas the PSC-22 measures the degree to which the workplace is positive, benign or toxic in terms of psychological safety, IxE combines this with a measure of individual susceptibility. Employees are on a continuum from resilient to susceptible. Clearly, the highest risk exists when susceptible employees are in a hostile environment – the epicentre for stress claims.
Autonomy in Isolation Model
The way we work is changing. As more companies adopt a work from home approach, there is a need to look towards the future. The Autonomy in Isolation Model (AIM) evaluates the ability of employees to remain productive at home and how well they deal with physical separation from the office and their colleagues.
Bullying & Harassment Profile
A detailed review looking at all aspects of bullying and harassment (verbal, physical, sexual, discriminatory and job related). Drills into the details of victim/perpetrator relationship (subordinate, peer, superior, gender), mode (F2F, online, in absentia), actions taken, reason(s) for inaction and outcome/impact. This provides an extremely comprehensive portrayal of what is transpiring in relation to bullying and harassment within the organisation.
Build your organisational structure from the ground up, one employee at a time. Who do you report to and who reports to you? Using AI, we chart the web of connections and provide a precise view of your organisation, both from a reporting and an intervention perspective. Know exactly where to make a difference.
Value of Benefit
When companies improve their SHAPE Score, improvements in four critical areas occur: reduced absenteeism, increased productivity, reduced staff turnover, and reduced illness/injury/accident/LTIFRs (Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate). These can be expressed in equivalent hours of additional work, or the financial value of those hours based on the wage of the employee; the VOB.
The risk Report frames selected SHAPE data in the context of business risk and provides executives with information regarding the most critical internal factors facing the company and where they can coordinate their intervention efforts. Business risks are analysed across 10 categories each of which may represent an intervention or risk mitigation opportunity; Productivity risk, Mental Health risk, Physical Health risk, Absence risk, Retention risk, Burnout risk, Bullying & Harassment, Financial risk and Business risk.
Team Performance Pyramid (TPP)
TPPs can provide clear visualisation of “hot spots” across any of the 12 Explorers. The “view” provided to the team manager is from their team down, and the best and worst of the teams are easily identifiable. With TPP you have the power to identify and manage the critical factors that affect your workforce.
Demographic Data Tables
These allow executives and managers to view company data across all Explorers based on primary demographics such as age, gender, site, state, job level or department/division. Such information is extremely helpful in identification of intervention targets to improve SHAPE metrics.
Employee SHAPE Profile
Employee SHAPE Profile (ESP) introduces 16 exciting new “personas". Each persona represents interesting and fun characteristics about employees based on their responses to the SHAPE Survey. The ESP provides engaging insights that help employees focus their efforts to improve and support their colleagues. An employee can share the ESP, which invites others to get their own SHAPE, get their ESP and continue the learning and improving.
