The Challenges

Baker Tilly understands how vital employee feedback is to its culture. A recent firm acquisition exemplified the proactive approach Baker Tilly leaders take in listening to new employees, particularly in the merger transition period. Already using Quantum Workplace for its employee engagement survey, Baker Tilly sought a survey solution to understand and evaluate the views of its new employees, with the goal of bridging any perceived issues related to the merger and to access how management could assist in their integration into the firm.

The Solution

A unique survey for employees from a newly merged-in firm:

  • Customized survey content focused on the recent merger
  • Ability to compare new employees’ responses to the rest of the Baker Tilly employee population
