C-me Employee Consent

C-me Implementation

Fundamental to our Managing Excellence Framework is our successful implementation and ongoing use of C-me colour profiling across the organization.  Certain employees will be invited to participate in the C-me program.  Each participant will complete a questionnaire and may participate in meetings with C-me consultants and/or SMC facilitators who have received training in the C-me program.  A C-me colour profile for each participant shall be generated based on this information (example in image of email signature below).


Communication Tools & Data

Individualized C-me ‘C’s will be added to a participant’s email signature, helping to support effective communication and adoption of a common leadership language.  This is aligned to two of the fundamental values of SMC, being authentic and inspiring our teams.

Access to an explanation of the best tools for communication with a participant will be provided to SMC employees (and, potentially in the future, external parties).  This will be generic, but the individualized icon will show which tendencies the individual has and will indicate the most effective and ineffective methods of communicating with that participant.

The data can also be used in many other useful ways such as presenting team dynamics, supporting recruitment, engagement, and retention.

In addition to the generic C-me explanations, icons and ‘C’s, C-me creates personalized report. The content of these reports is dependent on how an individual answers the C-me questionnaire. C-me has over 40,000 statements which relate to the following areas of behavior: communication preferences, resilient strengths, areas for development, blind statements, remote working preferences, handling setbacks, team contribution, enabling engagement, role agility and sales. Based upon how an individual answers the questionnaire, C-me’s algorithm pulls from its pool of statements and generates a personalized report which could cover the above areas.

SMC employees will have access to their personalized report on C-me’s online platform, C-me Live, and certain information derived from the reports shall be accessible to SMC employees.
