At Potential Project, we are research-led. In collaboration with researchers from Harvard, Columbia and Berkeley, we look for the data that tell the stories and the patterns that unlock insights. Our proprietary studies reveal a future of work that is truly human-centric.
We know it's hard to measure important things like employee engagement and well-being, team effectiveness, and leadership impact. How to know what to invest in these outcomes and what the return on that investment will be?
At Potential Project, we do this work so you don’t have to.
We have developed innovative and industry-leading diagnostic tools to gather unique data sets on a global scale. In partnership with a council of academic partners from leading universities, we help our clients make great decisions by relying on the power of big data and predictive analytics. We also make sure that our solutions and services incorporate the latest and most ground-breaking perspectives on individual and organizational behavior change.
In parallel to our global research, we evaluate and assess the impact of each client program we deliver. So, when you work with Potential Project, you will get real data on program effectiveness to see what has changed for your people and how that translates into concrete business metrics.
The new world of work isn’t based on guesswork. It’s based on visionary data collection and insightful story-telling. Together, they foretell what work is today and what it can be in the future.
