The research also identified what high-performance organizations do differently to gain insights that help them truly drive business performance and make strategic decisions based on workforce data.


Here are four ways high-performance organizations excel when it comes to workforce analytics:

  1. Quality of Hire

On the talent acquisition front, over 3x as many high-performance organizations measure quality of hire than low-performing organizations. Quality of hire communicates the value an organization gets for effort and money spent on recruiting, as well as how effective the business is at assimilating its new hires into the organization.

  1. Talent Mobility

Top companies are more likely to track talent mobility and measure manager success in moving talent, and are also 4.5x more likely to make the criteria for talent mobility transparent to the entire organization. Talent mobility can be used to engage top talent and build diversity into leadership pipelines.

  1. Diversity & Inclusion

High-performance organizations are 2.5x more effective at leveraging diversity and inclusion for business outcomes.

  1. Learning & Development

High-performance organizations are 6x more likely to evaluate the effectiveness of their learning and development programs than low-performing companies.
