Life Ed’s organisational health is in the top 10 percent of all sectors, according to a recent Organisational Health Index (OHI) analysis undertaken by McKinsey & Company via a pro-bono partnership.

The OHI assesses a company’s effectiveness and its management’s performance, based on an organisation-wide survey. It’s a tool that numerous public and private sector organisations have leveraged in order to benchmark their company’s health, align core areas of improvement, and improve overall organisational performance.

Staff from our national and NSW offices participated in a survey to measure effectiveness and management performance across a range of areas including leadership, continuous improvement capabilities, talent attraction and retention and customer insight.

When the results came back, Life Ed achieved high scores across nine key outcomes that are critical to an organisation’s health:



OHI Index Analysis results

With an overall health score of 93, McKinsey & Company said Life Ed is one of the ‘healthiest’ organisations they had seen to date. The results show that not only do we perform well in terms of the positive social impact but also our business activities align strongly to our mission– and as a collective we are empowered to execute these activities with excellence to achieve long-term performance.

McKinsey & Company compared these scores to over 3 million global respondents, benchmarking them against other organisations in the global social and public sector, the Australian & New Zealand sector, as well as the Australian Social and Not-for-profit sector. We’re proud that these scores placed us in the top 10% of organisations across all sectors.

The compiled views of employees and managers also revealed a strong alignment of Life Ed values. Significantly, 15 organisational values we ‘desire to attain’ were shown to already being put into practice representing a positive overall organisational health.
