THE IPA Culture Assessment

Every business owner knows the key to success is their people. Without an engaged team, sustainability and growth are not possible.


In the quest for achieving lofty goals, leaders can sometimes miss the bigger picture.

Firm partners, HR leaders and department managers recognize that employee engagement not only drives bottom-line results, but also staff retention. But many firms struggle with measuring and utilizing employee engagement in ways that produce a sustainable and competitive advantage.

Part ENGAGEMENT, part SATISFACTION, part EMPLOYEE-NET PROMOTER SCORE, IPA will assist your firm in bringing firmwide culture to the core of your growth strategy.

IPAs culture assessment provides insight into whether your culture is keeping pace with expectations in a rapidly changing business environment. The data will uncover whether the culture described in your mission statement and core values matches the real behaviors, beliefs, interactions and attitudes within your firm. 

Firms use the assessment to reveal areas of weakness, firm strengths, key cultural qualities to refine, and problem areas to troubleshoot.


The IPA Assessment can assist you in identifying the relative strength of your firm in core cultural qualities that are directly linked to achieving key business results, drivers of profitability and employee engagement.
