Frequently Asked Questions

What is Organizational Effectiveness?  Organizational Effectiveness refers to any practices that help divisions/departments/units at SLU reach their goals and make contributions to the University's goals through the use of evidence-based strategies and initiatives that promote a positive work environment and align personnel to help them realize their potential.

What is your approach to working with your clients?  We follow an organizational development model when providing process consultation. This approach begins by acknowledging that every client has a unique understanding of her or his own work environment and improvement needs.

How much does it cost?  The bulk of our services are provided to the university community free of charge; however, there may be costs associated with specific assessments from outside vendors that are required for some activities.

Who gets to see the results of the assessment?  The Learning & Development department will clearly state who will have access to any and all assessment results before any assessments are conducted. Access to results and data will be negotiated and agreed upon before any surveys or assessments are conducted.
