Interpreting your Score

**35-40: Optimal Efficiency**

Your organization demonstrates optimal capability in leveraging the input and sustainability of your workforce, supporting the ability for robust commercial outcomes. It is imperative to assess whether this success is intentional or coincidental. Sustaining this rating is crucial for ensuring ongoing positive  outcomes for your people and commercial performance.

**25-34: Positive Operational Performance**

Your organization exhibits strengths in maximizing employee input through robust well-being and people capital initiatives. However, there are identified areas that require a more comprehensive understanding and targeted intervention to prevent inefficiencies in translating your people’s efforts into outcomes.

**16-24: Operational Challenges**

It appears that your organization faces challenges in maximizing employee input and safeguarding their well-being. A thorough review of job design and operational processes is recommended to rectify inefficiencies and mitigate risks to employee welfare. Your organization currently exhibits more psychosocial risks and suboptimal people outcomes compared to industry standards.

**0-15: Critical Improvement Needed**

Your organization must urgently prioritize addressing how it supports its employees to prevent further psychosocial injury, turnover, and potential commercial leakage. Failure to address these issues promptly is likely to result in significant negative outcomes, impacting both performance and the overall reputation of the organization.
