But while most executives see a clear need to improve employee engagement, many have yet to develop tangible ways to measure and tackle this goal. However, a growing group of best-in-class companies says they are gaining competitive advantage through establishing metrics and practices to effectively quantify and improve the impact of their engagement initiatives on overall business performance.
These are among the findings of the Harvard Business Review Analytic Services report of more than 550 executives around employee engagement—research that features in-depth interviews with 12 best-practice company leaders.

Disruptive innovation, new business models, and globalization have
accelerated the rate of change for every business. To stay competitive, organizations are revising their business models, product sets, and other critical aspects of their operations on a much more frequent and continuous basis.
These organizations realize that real-time strategic planning and performance management are not just “nice to have” but “must have” capabilities. Yet many organizations still struggle to implement these capabilities. As a result, they’re unable to quickly revise their strategies, implement plans, and monitor results.
In order to stay competitive in a marketplace that increasingly values sustainability, organizations must build a philosophy and a practice of sustainability and establish performance and management methods to support it. This requires building standards into processes that are supported by applications and then providing ongoing education and support.
As more companies compete for business, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) increasingly demand higher production rates and greater production flexibility from suppliers. If smaller-sized companies want to compete, they need the right tools and latest technology. NC Machining manufactures should ask three primary questions when considering the tools to improve competitiveness and implement Lean practices:
• Do the tools provide the means for improved collaboration between engineering and manufacturing, and incorporate manufacturing best practices?
• Can all data and program information reside in one database or platform that is accessible concurrently by all enterprise stakeholders—from design engineering to the shop floor?
• Is it possible to perform real-time multi-disciplinary simulations to improve performance and manufacturing targets?

In such a competitive business market, retaining the best talent is crucial. Knowing what makes them want to walk out the door is the first step in keeping them. The good news is that business leaders recognize the peril they face - and the need to do something about it. In a recent survey, 45% said they fear becoming obsolete in three to five years; 73% agree on the business need to prioritize technology, and 66% are planning to invest in IT infrastructure and digital skills leadership. However, investment without strategy is unlikely to succeed. Because innovation comes from people, investment must foster human creativity. Investment in technology that enables workers to address new challenges in new ways will give rise to new business initiatives, happier customers, and superior corporate financial performance.

In today’s competitive work environment, attracting and retaining top talent is paramount and expensive.
Companies recruit high performing employees with deep experience, invest in training, and reward outcomes.
Yet while talent and experience are critical, new evidence suggests those attributes may not be enough.
It’s not simply how well a person can perform in a typical situation, but how quickly they can return to high
performance after an inevitable setback.

In some kinds of more traditional businesses the
finance department tends to swallow as much data
as is thrown at it but only outputs small, measured
and curated amounts of insights periodically: “Here’s
revenue vs target in the last quarter”.
These are undoubtedly essential for proper business
management, But periodic reports also mean it
can be too late for the business to respond. It’s
like driving by looking only in the rear-view mirror.
Looking at what’s behind isn’t going to let you spot a
sudden bend in the road!
Essentially, the highly competitive and evolved
business environment of today requires businesses
to have proactive, indicative business metrics.
Combined with more traditional metrics, these
mean businesses have invaluable and complete
insight in order to evaluate performance.
Proactive, indicative business metrics are found
across most successful businesses–and especially
amongst C-suite employees. These people know
