Brandon Hall Group to Launch Leadership Development Benchmarking Study

The world of leadership development is changing quickly, and organizations are taking many steps to keep up with the changes. Leadership development strategy and execution will require rethinking.

Boca Raton, FL, April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brandon Hall Group, the leading independent HCM research and analyst firm, is launching a study to benchmark how organizations are changing their strategy, investment, technology use, and measurement of leadership development.

“This brief survey is part of our ongoing effort to understand how the dynamics of leadership development are changing as organizations adjust their strategies in the hybrid work environment,” said Claude Werder, Senior Vice President, and Principal HCM Analyst.

Brandon Hall Group’s research initiative, Benchmarking Leadership Development, focuses on how competency models, development of development experiences, investment, and measurement are changing amid the need to prepare more leaders at all levels for new roles in a continuously evolving work environment and economy.

“The need for high-impact leadership development has never been greater,” Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. “Our previous research shows leadership development does not drive business results as much as employers need it to. We want to understand how organizations are changing and prioritizing their approaches because those decisions will significantly impact the future readiness of leaders.”

This quantitative research will be complemented with qualitative interviews to understand the tough decisions organizations must make in leveraging resources to develop more great leaders. The data and insights will fuel the development of research reports and tools — such as self-assessment tools, models, and frameworks — to help organizations improve the way they develop future leaders.

“We are being very intentional in how we explore the evolution of leadership development. There is a movement toward assessing leader readiness in various ways based on critical business objectives. So we are doing several concise, focused surveys and talking to as many organizations as possible to get a deep understanding and provide guidance and assistance to our members,” Werder said.

To participate in this study, go to Participants will receive summary survey results six to eight weeks after the survey launch. They will also get immediate download access to Brandon Hall Group’s strategy brief, Empowering Your Leaders to Reflect and Develop.
