Teachers of Tomorrow Sets High Initial Engagement Survey Benchmark


Teachers of Tomorrow, a teacher certification organization, was facing large changes. With new leadership and almost 50% employee turnover, they turned their focus on improving their employee engagement. After making some early improvements they needed a way to measure engagement levels, benchmark their progress, and gain insights to guide future actions. 


The organization partnered with People Element, an employee experience platform that allows them to quickly and easily deploy surveys to their workforce, collect responses in real-time and analyze their data to create action plans. With the help of their People Element success manager, Teachers of Tomorrow launched their first engagement survey to get a baseline measurement of their current efforts. The team was looking forward to receiving their initial responses to see if the changes they had made over the past few months focusing on improving engagement and morale had a positive impact. Their goal is to use the survey results to empower their management team with access to their data, and to create realistic and achievable action plans.  

After this first survey, Suzanne Solomon, VP of People and Culture at the organization, mentioned that she found the People Element platform to be user-friendly, straightforward, and intuitive.

It is clear their early engagement efforts brought the team together and made an impact.
