Employee Engagement Vendor

Celebrating 22 Years!

The Trusted Name in Employee Engagement Solutions since 2000



Decades of Experience

Founded in 2000, we largely created the employee engagement and retention solutions market.Through original research and pioneering products, we have helped share today’s knowledge and understanding of why workers choose to stay, what drives them away, and what can energize people to work hard and perform better.

Patented Methodology

In 2008 we patented our Employee Engagement and Retention System, a method for interactivity diagnosing and addressing workplace issues that can lead to employee turnover. This patented methodology is the foundation of our set of solutions for increasing employee engagement and retention

Award Winning Solutions

We twice have won HR Executive Magazine’s Product of the Year award for our engagement and retention solutions. Our products also won the International Customer Management Institute’s (ICMI) Best in Show award at its annual conference. In 2018, we were named one of the Top 10 Employee Engagement Solution Providers by HR Tech Outlook Magazine.

Respected Industry Research

For over a decade, we’ve conducted ongoing engagement research. Our largest study, Workplace America, has focused on employee engagement and retention trends since 2004 as the longest continuously run study of its kind. Each year in this annual research, we uncover new tactics and emerging strategies which we continue to share and incorporate into our solutions to better engage and retain employees.  In 2017 we launched the first Workplace America Leadership Research study. This research reveals the importance of measuring how well leaders are engaging their teams, training them to improve their skills and last but most importantly, to hold them accountable for team engagement.  We’ve been gathering workplace data since 2000 creating a basis for a wide range of key indices that are essential metrics to guiding your strategies, practices, and return on investment.

If you’re aiming to truly impact engagement (and the resulting business outcomes), it takes a strategic, process-oriented approach. For us, this approach is characterized by three simple words.

Commit. Engage. Excel.


Named One of the Top 10 Employee Engagement Solutions Providers in 2018

Top 10We are honored to be among the top 10 providers announced by HR Tech Outlook magazine. CEO Christopher Mulligan reacted to the news, "This is a great honor. I co-founded TalentKeepers in 2000, and for 18 years, we've focused on nothing else but helping organizations engage and retain employees with turnkey solutions."

 Increasing employee engagement is fast becoming one of the critical elements of a successful organization. Data shows highly engaged workforces can drive higher performance in key metrics like quality, safety, customer service, and profitability. Worldwide, only 13 percent of employees consider themselves to be fully engaged, according to HR Tech Outlook. 

The magazine dedicates its May issue to helping organizations understand and evaluate their options when hiring an employee engagement solutions provider.

HR professionals must equip and empower business leaders with the right tools to achieve success with an employee engagement and retention program. This challenge has driven the rise in solution providers that offer organizations data gathering, analysis, and interpretation expertise. We provide solutions for organizations to use throughout the lifecycle of each employee, from date of hire through to post-employment. Click here to learn more now

Director, Talent Development, Envision Physician Services
TalentKeepers’ employee engagement methodology and their knowledge of talent development, organizational change, business outcomes, and of the Healthcare industry have been cornerstones for starting to realize our goal of being a great place to work. We have leaned on their expertise in survey design, deployment and analysis for several years. Based on our partnership, we have seen our leaders embrace employee feedback and keep engagement as a priority throughout the year.

Jenny Santos 
AVP, Employee Services, SAFE Credit Union
Customer-focused, responsive, knowledgeable, forward-thinking, and solution-oriented are just a few adjectives I use to describe TalentKeepers.  We have partnered with TalentKeepers for over 10 years for the administration of our employee-engagement surveys.  They go above and beyond to ensure an excellent customer service.  The administration of the employee surveys is consistently smooth and they are always willing to modify or customize survey statements for us if needed.  Their analysis of data and reporting is top-notch.  Executive leaders receive detailed analytics and information on survey results, trends, and benchmark comparisons.  Reports also include the analysis of survey key metrics that correlate with the operations performance metrics – all in an effort to drive action plans and goal setting.   Many of our leaders have reported that TalentKeepers analytics and the ease of reading and interpreting their reports are the best they’ve seen.  They are committed to helping companies improve employee engagement and they do so in a very authentic and supportive way.  I encourage any company who has the key initiative of enhancing employee engagement to contact TalentKeepers.  You’ll be very pleased with the results that they will help you accomplish.

Niki Yarrington
Chief Talent Officer, WESTconsin Credit Union

We have partnered with TalentKeepers for our employee engagement survey every six months and additional leadership development programs for all of our leaders in the organization. TalentKeepers is a true partner with your business. Much, much more than just a survey provider. Their expertise and guidance have been invaluable with the interpreting and steps after each survey. They are highly organized and are with you each step of the process - excellent project managers. And they are a wealth of knowledge not only in the survey product but, more importantly, in the soft skills side for supervisors in how to acknowledge the feedback from employees and work on action plans, always available for any questions or additional consultation. Our employees have been very excited about the overall program. They provide many tools to support the process for the supervisors and managers. Their training programs are excellent - our supervisors and managers have found them extremely valuable. Lastly, their service is very personalized. You will not feel like a small fish in a big pond, as is sometimes the case with other companies. I would not hesitate to recommend partnering with TalentKeepers!

They are extremely flexible in approaching this process across all of the different locations we operate. I would recommend their services to anyone looking to enhance their leadership competencies in their business.

How We Work with You


From Day 1, our goal is to understand your needs, business objectives, the vision of a successful program, and partnership expectation throughout the entire process.  Your dedicated team of experienced Industrial-Organizational (I/O) Psychologists will work closely with you to design, implement and support your programs.

Project Design  We assess your situation and work with you to develop a strategic approach to meet your goals with survey participation, communication, data review, and execution.

Implementation, Your team of I/O Psychologists reviews project tasks, roles, and responsibilities to ensure on-time implementation, typically within 30 Days.

Reporting  You have access to participation and completion reports to track progress in real-time.  We handle communications with employees and provide phone and email customer service support. Post-survey, we provide group and leader results that explain crucial issues that require attention. And we meet with your executive team to demonstrate how survey results relate to organizational performance.

Goal Setting and Action Planning  Most organizations receive results within 30 days of survey close and begin goal setting and action planning.  We are training your leaders to look at their results and take action. And we provide you with a post-survey communications template to ensure employees hear about the survey results and how the organization will take action.

Post-Project Ongoing Support  At no additional cost, we provide ongoing support to review program progress, provide observations and recommendations, and learn more about your evolving business challenges.
