Profitability Speed Limits

Major Breakthough for Restoring A Thriving Economy: New Benchmark Report Helps Business Leaders Shatter Their Profitability Speed Limits

Every year, for the past eight years, executives who’ve attended my speaking engagements have eagerly looked forward to the annual summer release of the Return on People Benchmark Report. This report allows them to benchmark their performance against one of the most powerful KPIs that’s simply not reported on anywhere else and that most business leaders have never taken advantage of: Return on People (RoP).  RoP measures how well you turn the talent of your biggest asset and greatest headache (the people who walk in the door every day, out every night, and choose whether or not to engage fully) into value that customers will eagerly and richly reward you for providing.

The results are never what you’d expect! Every year I see some, fascinating shifts in the leaders and laggards, such as new F500 companies scoring A’s, B’s and C’s, and top dogs falling down the scale to F’s and F-‘s. I report on new trends, surprises, and outliers.

This year things got extra exciting, as the Benchmark Report was picked up by hundreds of Business Journals, Newspapers, Blogs Radio Stations and TV stations, making this information widely available for the first time ever to their local business communities.  Did you see it? Some of the major media outlets include:

Business Journals in over 44 major US cities.

Top Online news and information services.

Leading Broadcast Media channels, in over 120 cities across the USA.

Expanding the reach of this Report is a major breakthrough for restoring a thriving economy, because here’s the transformation that’s possible when this Benchmark helps business leaders shatter their profitability speed limits.


I recall your seminar as though it was just yesterday. You asked us all to plot our “Return on People” on the chart. Unfortunately, at that stage our profit was in the negative… actually negative $9,955 per employee. While our management team knew we were in a loss position, the impact of seeing ourselves “at the bottom of the class” was very impactful. From your presentation, we reset our goals and we implemented the plan you outlined. For our year ended December 31, 2014, I am pleased to inform you that we achieved $26,671 profit per employee. This was also the highest profitability level in the organization’s history.
