Mystery Shop

Programs can be a simple (tick & flick) compliance check of core business guidelines, or a complex program that involves a series of compliance checks to be performed across multiple business areas, with weighted analysis and the execution of a reward and recognition initiative. The covert survey process ensures this experience is untainted by staff awareness and special treatment.


Hot Spot

As the aim of each Hot Spots collection can vary considerably, the 'focus' will determine whether or not the survey can be conducted overtly or covertly. The key benefit to these programs is that the survey is small enough for the 'question' to completely change prior to each scheduled collection period. Businesses can benefit significantly from this program as it accommodates the ever changing nature of priorities in today's world.
