People-Profit Chain

You are here

The Institute for Corporate Productivity has analyzed thirty years of data to better understand the relationship between people and organizational performance.  What separates high-performing organizations from other companies?  Their "People-Profit Chain" highlights the differences.

Each domain of the "People-Profit Chain" is described by:

  • Outcome -- what happens when the domain is done well
  • KPIs -- key performance indicators and people practices most correlated with market performance
  • Correlation with Market Performance -- extent to which this domain is associated with change in market position
  • Differentiating Organizational Practice -- what most sets high performing orgs apart from others
