Put real numbers and targeted actions on organizational health
An organization’s health—its ability to align around and achieve strategic goals—is critical for long-term performance. However, many leaders overlook organizational health because they lack a clear way to measure and improve it. Organizational Health Index (OHI) applies analytical rigor to organizational health management. Our quantitative diagnostics and proven recipes for success empower senior leaders to measure and achieve the organizational health required to sustain long-term performance.
Benchmark your health
The OHI benchmark provides leaders with a detailed picture of their organizations’ health compared to peers. With over 1 billion data points across geographies and industries, it offers a global standard to measure and manage organizational health.
Align your organization
Sustained performance requires different functions, teams, geographies, and tenure levels to share a common set of goals and priorities. The OHI helps leaders find the disconnects and get everyone on the same page.
Drive organizational performance
The OHI survey and benchmarking data explain up to 50 percent of performance variations within companies. This helps leaders analyze the impact of company practices and culture on performance and create an implementation roadmap to improve it.
Organizational Health Index by the numbers
Scientific, data-driven approach
Our database of 7+ million survey responses enables us to benchmark organizational health and tie it directly to financial performance. Combined with industry and functional insights grounded in over 1 billion proprietary data points, the OHI helps organizations pinpoint opportunities to improve health and drive business success.
Pioneers in organizational health
McKinsey invented the concept of organizational health. Fifteen years ago, we challenged ourselves to go beyond traditional components, like culture and climate, and measure the “hard” elements that drive financial performance. 2,500+ clients and 7+ million surveys later, we‘re still the leaders.
