In today’s competitive marketplace, few organizations believe they are capitalizing upon the full potential of their human resource capital. Only a small percentage of employees reach their full potential after joining an organization. Most become average performers, while some do not perform well at all or even quit after being on the job for a short period of time. This results in lost productivity and an increased cost in recruiting, hiring, and retraining employees. The Ken Blanchard Companies polled more than 300 leaders about their perspectives on their organization’s level of productivity and found that only 10 percent believed their organizations were operating at optimal levels.
