Founded in 1980, Siena College is located in New York's Capital District. The Siena College Research Institute (SCRI) began polling as a regional polling center and grew to be an important part of the political and economic discourse across the country. Politicians, pundits, economists and the media all ask, “What did the last Siena Poll say?” When referring to statewide and national attitudes and opinions regarding economic sentiment, favorability of politicians and significant economic, political, social or cultural issues, people look to Siena.

Organizational culture is defined by how employees relate to their workplace, how they describe their organization and how they see their role of fitting into an organization. Culture is made up of values, perceptions and behaviors of employees. The organizational culture study seeks to measure the values and behaviors of your employees that contribute to the unique environment of your organization.
SCRI designed a proprietary study and score that measures behaviors and attitudes of an organization’s employees and generates a score based on the findings. The score represents organizational health and overall functionality.
