Vernon Hills, IL (PRWEB) February 10, 2014

Wonderlic, the nation’s leading publisher of employment assessments and student admissions tests, today announced the “Most Engaging” Leaders and Employers in the Wonderlic Leadership Invitational.

The purpose of the Invitational was to help organizations evaluate the quality of their leadership team. A leader is more than a job title or position of authority. Excellent leaders create an environment where others want to follow by inspiring others to internalize organizational goals and values, apply extraordinary effort, and achieve results above and beyond expectations.

The Invitational was open to organizations of all sizes as well as individuals. Leaders and their direct reports completed a series of questionnaires, which produced a Favorability Engagement Rating that was used to determine the most engaging leaders and organizations. We are pleased to announce and congratulate…
