MHS Board Self-Assessment

The Board Self-Assessment blends perspectives from various governance approaches and includes the following dimensions: board practice, fiduciary oversight, strategic engagement, generative/creative work, integration of faith and values in board work, and personal board member engagement. The assessment process typically takes 5-7 weeks.


MHS Board Peer Assessment

The MHS Board Peer Assessment tool is a brief survey typically used to measure a board member’s individual position on the board as they are being considered for reappointment.


MHS CEO Performance Assessment

MHS offers customized CEO assessments through our online CEO Performance Assessment tool.

A timely and objective review of the CEO’s performance is an important responsibility of the Board of Directors. It is essential that the Board and CEO have a shared understanding of the accomplishments and strengths of the CEO as well as areas where further improvement is needed. In addition, the performance review process provides opportunity to identify goals for the coming year. The assessment process typically takes 5-7 weeks.


MHS Employee Engagement Assessment

Employees are the most important asset of an organization and their satisfaction at work is a key indicator of the success of the organization. Initiating a well-designed engagement assessment can be an effective way to gain a whole population view on the state of employee satisfaction within the organization. The assessment provides critical feedback to the CEO and potentially increases early identification of any areas that need clarification. MHS recommends that this tool not be used in isolation, but rather that it exists alongside a plan for communicating the results with employees, and a plan to ensure the assessment results are used to strengthen the organization’s communication, collaboration, and celebration with employees. MHS recommends at least 9-12 weeks to complete the assessment process.
