Studies show that aligned employees are more likely to be top performers compared to the competition. Aligned employees are more accountable for their work. They take the initiative to solve problems. And they make choices as you would expect them to do.

Alignment within your company encourages collaboration with a mutual understanding of your organization’s goals.

Employees who are aligned with your direction and their job roles are more focused, more productive, and more successful.


According to Gallup, employees who are not engaged have:

  • 37% higher absenteeism,
  • 18% lower productivity, and
  • 15% lower profitability.

Simply put, disengaged employees are costing you money.

Engaged people aren’t just motivated to work, they believe their efforts are meaningful. They are knowledgeable, attentive, and committed in their work. Increasing employee engagement gives you a strategic advantage over your competition and increases your bottom line.


Have you discovered that some of your people aren’t capable of overcoming adversity? Are they not the employees they claimed to be during the hiring process? Are they uninformed and lacking knowledge that impacts their productivity? Are they not committed to the team and not overcoming challenges they face daily?

Resilient employees are better able to manage work-related challenges and address problems by having initiative. They are highly capable of carrying out their job in routine and non-routine situations and they are apt to share their learned knowledge and experience with others. They are empowered, confident and fulfilled.


Optimizing your people is your organization’s biggest opportunity to improve results. But, research by the Metrus Institute found that more than 80% of managers have significant gaps in their ability to optimize talent.

Talent optimization means your people are aligned with your business strategy and goals. Your people clearly know what is expected of them and their efforts are measured and rewarded. Talent optimization means not only are your employees improving in their capabilities, but their performance is advancing your company goals.
