Our intention is that you would use the Equaitor™ Assessment Service to explore your business’s preparedness for the future of work.
This is not a definitive assessment as the results provide an early and general indication only. They are based on our definition of the things that matter for organisations today, and that will be critical in the future. These are viewpoints and insights that we've gathered over our experience across hundreds of cases in almost every industry sector - over many years
There’s no charge for this assessment but we may well make recommendations that suggest services/solutions that could be offered (in part or fully) by Group Partners - but there’s no obligation to do anything as a result.
OUR FUTURE PLANS
We have plans to develop this platform further. In time it's likely that there will be paid features included - in addition to the free assessment. Please let us know if you would like to be kept informed about our plans for the platform by emailing email@example.com
