2020 Employee Engagement Benchmarks

Standard vs. emerging

Culture Amp's significant growth in customers has resulted in a number of new benchmarks. To meet customer needs, we have two classes of benchmarks, emerging benchmarks and standard benchmarks. Our standard benchmarks have strict requirements for publication. Our "emerging benchmarks" which have slightly lower requirements for creation than our standard benchmarks to provide value to our customers earlier.

What Does Good Look Like?

To help customers understand the upper ranges of how organizations are scoring, we have generated benchmark cuts with scores from the Top 25% (75th percentile) and Top 10% (90th percentile) of companies in each of our published benchmarks. Because of the statistical methodology we use, we're able to generate these extra percentile for all our benchmarks - in fact, our emerging benchmarks using bootstrapping actually increases accuracy of these percentiles!

An important thing to consider when selecting benchmarks is that an exact industry match may not be necessary, or the best thing. You'll want to consider a comparison benchmark that captures where your employees come from and where they might be going.
