We will develop an understanding of companies’ leadership processes in order to identify trends in best leadership practices and share them globally.

Chally Group Worldwide announces the launch of the 4th annual Global Leadership Research featuring Chief Executive Magazine’s “Best Companies for Leaders”, the premier ongoing study that gathers critical information on issues identified as important for understanding best practices in leadership development.

Leading companies will be featured in the January/February 2014 issue of Chief Executive magazine. Participating companies will benefit from benchmarking their performance based on the report; build brand awareness; identify best practices tips and tactics; use report findings in recruitment and retention efforts; boost employee pride and morale; and stand out above competitors in leadership talent.

CEOs and senior human resource executives around the world provide information that enables measurement of the long-term financial impact of effective leadership development. The Global Leadership Research Report points to evolving trends in leadership development and recognizes innovative approaches used to meet challenges faced by companies committed to growing and investing in their own talent.

Over the three years of this continuing research study Chally has surveyed more than 2500 C-level and senior human resources and development leaders from global organizations. Key findings from the 2013 report included:

  •     Operations, Sales, and Finance employees continue to lead in assuming top leadership roles
  •     Skillsets for leaders vary according to company size
  •     The approach to identifying and recruiting for top talent also varies by company size
  •     High quality leadership development drives business performance

“We continue to pursue direct input from senior business leaders, as it is key to the success of this research to gain insight into development techniques and major failure points in executive development,” stated Ken Carroll, chief executive officer, Chally. “We will develop an understanding of companies’ leadership processes in order to identify trends in best leadership practices and share them globally.”

Chally’s research methodology has been developed and refined by a team of experts in applied research. It incorporates feedback from past winners to uncover emerging trends in how companies design and execute leadership development practices that account for complexities in a global business environment.

All survey participants will receive a complimentary copy of the 2013 Global Leadership Research report and a complimentary copy of the 2014 report when available.
