We’ve tailored our compensation to better retain talent in key roles. Has our turnover gone down in the years since these programs have been implemented? Are our hiring vs. turnover rates changing in a predictable way the supports our headcount targets? How are we doing in the attraction and retention of talent relative to our peers?


Effectiveness of Diversity Programs
Age/Generational Analysis

How has our female representation changed in various roles/jobs in locations across the globe. Is our wage gap closing - job by job, country by country? How effective have our diversity programs been relative to our peers?

Do we have pockets in our population where significant staff is trending closer to retirement age? Our management staff continues to be composed of much younger employees as compared to the market. Do we have enough experience in our management ranks to effectively lead the company?
