The What, Why & How

We’ve built a community of industry leaders and employees at all levels who are ready to move beyond promises and make progress towards building and industry as diverse as the growing community of consumers who enjoy our products every day. The Camber Survey System offers our Partners: 




What is the Camber Survey System?

The Camber Survey System was developed in partnership with world renowned Claremont Evaluation Center. The two-part survey, which consists of an Organizational Workplace Survey and Employee Survey, was designed and administered to uphold the rigor, integrity, and reliability of the workplace  survey process. The results of the Survey are provided exclusively to Camber partners who participate in the Camber Survey System. The data collected serves as a directional indicator of cohort-wide trends as well as provides organizational specific data which captures employee perspectives on your organization’s DEI efforts. Your organization-specific data is for use by your organization only.  Both individual employee and organization specific data are designed to protect the confidentiality of everyone who has participated in the Survey.

Q: What are the primary goals of the Camber Survey System?

A: Data and insights provide the foundation for successful Workplace Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion implementation and strategy. The goal of the Camber survey is to create actionable results for our Partners and industry insights across a cohort of organizations in the Outdoor Recreation Economy who are committed to Workplace DEI.

Q: Can my organization only participate in one of the Surveys?

A: No. In order to participate and receive your results, your organization must sign up the entire Camber Survey System which includes the Organizational Workplace and Employee Survey. 

Q: What is the difference between the Organizational Workplace Survey and the Employee Survey, and will our organization be required to engage with both surveys in order to participate?

A: The Workplace Survey is filled out by a leadership representative from each participating organization. This survey should be completed with approval/input from a member of the executive leadership team and include an organization-wide perspective.

The Employee Survey is completed by North American employees across all worksites of the company, and captures the individual employee perspective of workplace DEI efforts.

Q: If my organization participates in the Organizational Workplace Survey and the Employee Survey, will our data remain confidential?

A: The confidentiality of our Camber Survey System data is a priority. We work with the Claremont Evaluation Center to implement best practices to protect company data and employee confidentiality alike.

Q: Can’t my organization just conduct its own internal research?

A: It is vital to understand the methodology of how the surveys were designed and administered to uphold the rigor, integrity, and reliability that was employed in the process. Click HERE to learn more about our field-leading Partners at Claremont Evaluation Center and the study methodology employed to design the Camber Organizational Workplace and Employee Surveys.

Q: Once my organization has signed up to participate in the Survey, what can we be doing to prepare?

A: To prepare for the Survey, your organization can active your employees by importing your employee roster.  It’s easy to activate 100% of your employees with auto-activation. Employee self-activation available on a case-by-case basis. Employer auto-activation ensures equity and inclusion across your organization, and produces the most actionable results and richer data.

Q: When can my organization expect to receive its Survey results?

A: During the month of December,  the Camber Team will reach out to each organization to share their Camber Survey System results and insights. 

Q: My organization has International employees, can they participate in the Survey?

A: At this time, because of the nuances of international DE&I work, the Survey is only being fielded across workplaces in North America.
