You probably already benchmark all kinds of KPI’s – although here’s one that’s never reported in the press but can make a huge difference in your business.

Each year executives and media contacts across North America eagerly await the Return on People Benchmark Report, which shows how well some of the largest companies in the world are transforming talent into value that customers are willing to pay for. When employees ask for a raise it’s because they think they’re the best.  But are they?  84% of companies will score a B, C, D, or F on the Report, and when executives and their teams see where they stand vs. their top competitors, they get seriously motivated to set the bar higher!  Where do YOU stand?

Over 400 media outlets picked up the story of healthy 13% gains and one disturbing change that was brought into sharp focus by the 2015 Benchmark Report. The healthy gains come from a 5-year upward trend in the average Return on People (ROP) amongst the 500 companies in the Benchmark, which is up 13% just since 2014.

While the trend is up, the disturbing change is that for the first time in 5 years, it comes with flat employment compared with an average 1 million new jobs per year in prior years. A flat line in hiring hasn’t happened since 2012, which was quickly followed by a hiring spike. With the ongoing poor employment statistics in the US economy, this is troubling and worthy of watching closely in the coming year.

Are you hiring new employees? Maintaining status quo? Are you downsizing?

You can’t shrink your way to growth. It’s time for you to take control, and have all the profit you need to fund your growth.
