The 2014 Best Companies for Leadership survey findings
Now in its ninth year, our Best Companies for Leadership study has a simple, single purpose. We identify the organizations with the best leadership practices and then see what we can learn from them. Our study is the largest global research survey of its kind, with more than 17,000 individuals at 2,100 organizations participating. And it’s truly global in nature, with responses from 115 countries.
According to this year’s survey, the Best Companies for Leadership take a determined and disciplined approach to help leaders develop and rise within their organizations. A key finding from this year’s study was that 80 percent of the Top 20 companies had established clear career paths for their employees, compared to only 48 percent of all other companies. Similarly, 80 percent of the Top 20 were well ahead of their peer groups by providing career development experiences for their organization’s highest potentials, ensuring the company has the right people with the right skills when needed to fill their most critical roles.
