Appendix A1. Organizational Health Assessment

Note

An Organizational Health Assessment (OHA) is a diagnostic tool to assess the capacity of an organization at six levels, from the person to the relationships, the management to the systems, the leadership to the marketplace.

Many of our clients conduct an annual OHA, similar to an annual physical, to better identify and address their issues.

How to implement an Organizational Health Assessment:

  • Contact us at www.JoeCalhoon.com.

  • Conduct the confidential survey.

  • Use the report and recommendations to improve your organization.

  • Utilize the OHA annually to measure progress and build capacity in the six areas.

Why Conduct an Organizational Health Assessment?

An Organizational Health Assessment:

  • Collects confidential information from a company's employees.

  • Compiles the information and defines issues that will improve organizational performance.

  • Provides a measure of effectiveness than can be improved from year to year.

  • Increases employee involvement in the organizational development process.

  • Strengthens understanding, commitment, and morale.

See Figure A1.1 for a summary chart example.
