Good Jobs Scorecard

The Good Jobs Scorecard shows how well your company is delivering value to customers, employees, and investors. You can use this scorecard to clarify financial, competitive, and moral reasons for change. You can also use it to set goals and targets and to track progress. Once you determine your performance gaps, the Good Jobs Diagnostic will help you identify what you need to change.

The Good Jobs Scorecard is a free tool. If you do use it, please email with one idea for improving it or to share with us how you used it.
