“Korn Ferry’s Employee Engagement Awards recognize organizations that have built best-in-class levels of engagement within the countries they operate, as measured through our employee study,” said Ben Hubbard, Korn Ferry Director of Culture and Engagement. “Receiving this award is a true accolade, as it showcases those companies that are building work environments in which people can thrive.”

Employee engagement is widely used as a critical performance indicator by the world’s most progressive enterprises. Korn Ferry research shows high levels of engagement can help boost revenue growth by up to two and a half times over peer companies.

“Having a highly engaged workforce is no longer a ‘nice to have,’” said Hubbard. “An engaged workforce has the power to deliver tangible competitive advantage in the ever-evolving war for talent and discretionary performance.”
