"Dr. Michael Warech was hired by me to conduct our enterprise-wide employee engagement survey. Michael served as strategic advisor and primary consultant on the project. Michael seamlessly guided us through, and effectively managed, all aspects of the engagement. Our employee survey process ultimately became branded within the company and served both a strategic and tactical role in our ability to understand the drivers of engagement, to keep a pulse on the level of employee engagement and, to identify areas to action for improving the overall employee experience. Michael provided guidance on survey content, enhancements to our survey administration process, as well as on the action planning and follow-through side. Michael’s expertise regarding large-scale employee opinion survey work is unparalleled. I would, without reservation, recommend Michael and his company to anyone looking for reliable and sound professional guidance and support in the conduct of their survey work."

Michael was thoughtful, immediately responsive, very open to collaborating to ensure the language we were using fit beautifully within our organizational culture. Most importantly, he was a tremendous thought partner, bringing a wealth of expertise to the table. I very much look forward to working with him again in the future."
