One of the largest investments most organizations make is in human capital—your “people equity.”   How do you ensure that these investments move performance to peak levels at your organization? The people equity or ACE model consists of three core elements: alignment, the extent to which the workforce is connected with the business strategy and each other; capabilities, the talent, information, and resources required to execute that strategy; and engagement, the degree to which workers are willing to go beyond the minimum requirements to support the organization’s mission. This session will show you how this model links to operational, financial, customer and employee outcomes and how you can use this model to ensure you are using the correct data to inform your metrics specifically around your employee engagement or satisfaction surveys.  This session will challenge traditional approaches to employee surveys and provide strong research showing how organizations can use surveys in more effective and powerful ways to achieve business goals. At the end of the session, you will be able to apply this new model to your organization, understand the drivers of performance, and provide information that will be important to C-suite executives.
