New Possible is on a mission to help every leader unlock the competitive advantage of their people. We do this by turning employee feedback into the kind of meaningful insight that can build a more engaged workforce.

Take part in the ‘Best Overall People Experience’ category

The ‘Best Overall People Experience’ categories are decided by employee feedback captured using New Possible’s next generation NP360 assessment. To receive a personalised feedback link, email us at hello@newpossible.io. Feedback can be collected until February 8th.

NP360 is a short survey that gathers a 360-degree view of your people experience across seven themes, including satisfaction, wellbeing, work-life balance, relationships, culture, purpose and engagement. Individual responses are anonymous, and feedback is only shared with you. 

After Winners have been announced, New Possible will provide you with a copy of responses and a free summary report.
