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.
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 Managament Sinstitute’s (ICMI) Best in Show award at its annual conference. In 2018, we were names 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 yo 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.
We've Been Named One of the Top 10 Employee Engagement Solutions Providers in 2018
We 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 workforce's 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. Research shows employee engagement is not healthy for an organization and leads to higher levels of turnover.
The magazine dedicates their May issue to helping organizations understand and evaluate their options when considering hiring an employee engagement solutions provider.
To achieve success with an employee engagement and retention program, HR professionals must equip and empower business leaders with the right set of tools. This challenge has driven the rise in solution providers that offer expertise in data gathering, analysis and interpretation for organizations. We offer solutions for organizations to use throughout the lifecycle of each employee, from date of hire through to post-employment. Click here to learn more

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.

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.

We have partnered with TalentKeepers for our employee engagement survey every 6 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 has 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!
