Companies That Align Talent with Business Strategy Outperform Others by 16%, Retain 30% More Top-Performers, and See 34% Higher Employee Performance According to The State of Talent Optimization Report

Talent strategy is the No. 1 priority executives will focus on in 2020. This is substantiated when one considers the business value of designing and executing an optimized talent strategy. The 2020 State of Talent Optimization report?published today by The Predictive Index?found a strong correlation between talent optimization and company performance. In fact, 600 executives across 20 industries revealed that companies with aligned talent and business strategies are more likely to outperform other companies, retain top talent, see higher employee performance, and achieve strategic success rates of nearly 90%.

"While most organizations have a business strategy and a financial plan to support it, The State of Talent Optimization report finds only 36% have a talent strategy?and a mere 12% align their talent and business strategies," said Mike Zani, CEO of The Predictive Index. "However, those that do have talent strategies designed to hire, manage, and engage their people in a way that aligns with business objectives significantly outperform other companies. The essence of leadership is aligning employees with the business strategy to achieve maximum success."

Key findings from the report:

In addition to uncovering the business value of talent optimization, The 2020 State of Talent Optimization report also provides data and insights into how hiring, management, and employee engagement practices impact business outcomes, including:

What's more, the following subject matter experts provided valuable insights throughout the report: Kirk Arnold, Executive in Residence at General Catalyst; Yuchun Lee, CEO and Co-Founder of Allego; Dena Upton, VP of People at Drift; Marilynn Duker, CEO of Brightview Senior Living; Tracie Sponenberg, Chief People Officer of The Granite Group; and Meghan Joyce, COO of Oscar Health.

"From my own experience, CXOs' talent strategies are not being translated downward effectively," said Yuchun Lee, CEO of Allego. "The answer is a shift in business strategy toward an ?employee-centricity' model where highly engaged and effective employees lead to satisfied and loyal customers, in turn leading to stronger company fundamentals. The next step is the adoption of technology to help scale the type of training and development needed."
