Emotional Climate in Organisations
What they are, what doesn't work, and how they help your business succeed.

When designed properly, an Emotional Climate Survey can give business owners and human resources departments an important glimpse into how employees feel, from the ground floor, up. To reap the multiple benefits from an Emotional Climate Survey, you need to understand how it works.

The Emotional Climate Survey provides a direct way of discovering the opinions of employees that would likely otherwise be overlooked and unreported. By determining the way employees feel, business owners and in particular the leaders in the organisation, can take immediate action to ensure identified gaps are resolved and areas of weakness are improved, as necessary.

Emotional Climate Surveys are also a great way to make employees feel that they are important and valued and they contribute to the improvement of business practices. This also boosts morale which ultimately positively impacts productivity in the workplace.

We all experience a wide range of positive and negative feelings at work as we interact with colleagues, customers, suppliers and others. These feelings influence our decisions, behaviour and performance in interesting ways. 

Positive feelings have a ‘broaden and build’ effect causing us to think more broadly, engage more deeply and perform better.
Negative emotions tend to have a ‘narrow and limiting’ effect, causing us to be more closed-minded, less engaging and poorer at performing. At a collective level, these emotions impact the bottom line. In high performing organisations, people experience more positive emotions and less negative emotions than those in low performing organisations.

The Emotional Climate Index (ECI) has been designed to measure three dimensions of emotions at work:

Current Emotions

How often your people experience certain feelings at work.

Fair and reasonable emotions

How often your people think it’s fair and reasonable to experience these feelings at work given the nature and context of your workplace.

Ideal Emotions

How often your people think they should ideally experience these feelings in your workplace in order to be effective.

When to measure the Emotional Climate

To measure the emotions of staff within an organisation, especially before and after an emotional intelligence development program.
