Invest in the value of the workforce.

Good jobs can lead to better companies.

If you asked employees if they had a good job, you’d get a variety of answers. But what truly makes a job good? Can you measure that? And if you could, how would you manage your business differently?

Introducing the Good Job Score Assessment Tool.

Two Sigma Impact, in collaboration with PwC, designed the Good Job Score assessment tool to link what workers care about – job quality– to what investors and corporate leaders value – business outcomes.

It was created to be open for any company to use. The Good Job Score Assessment Tool provides management teams with insight into how employees would rate their job on four dimensions. You’ll learn where employees believe their company can improve and see how your score compares to other companies.

Our bold ambition: For the Good Job Score to become the core voice-of-worker metric for measuring and benchmarking job quality in companies over time.

Company Good Job Score
A new standard to measure workforce health.

Amplifies the voice of the worker.

A new tool to learn directly from workers and discover what matters most to them.

Simple to use.

With 12 questions to measure the 4 dimensions of a Good Job, we created a common language that’s easy to use.

Actionable insight to support decision-making.

The results inform actions that companies can take in an effort to improve job quality.

Designed to provide a valid score for any company.

A new measure that aims to be representative no matter the industry or employee.

We imagine a world where every company uses their Good Job Scorecard to help guide them.

The preliminary benchmark data was based on 5,800+ workers surveyed at over 60 companies across industries.

The results? Preliminary analysis indicates that a company’s Good Job Score is positively associated with other employee engagement metrics and has a moderate positive correlation with financial fundamentals such as free cash flow-to-sales ratio, current ratio, and profit margins.

What does it mean to have a “Good Job”?

We believe that Good Jobs aren’t just good for society, they are good business. Our definition of a Good Job was based on rigorous research that catalogued over 440+ metrics related to job quality and surveyed over 11,000+ employees.

Watch this TED Talk from Two Sigma Impact’s Warren Valdmanis to learn why Good Jobs can be the key to building great companies.

This research led to four key dimensions of a Good Job:

Leadership

Senior leadership has the skills, capabilities, and genuine desire to engage the workforce

Purpose

The company’s mission and values are clear to employees and connected to their work

Growth

Employees feel they have the feedback, support and opportunities to learn and grow in their careers

Fairness

Employees feel they are safe in the workplace, fairly compensated and have sufficient flexibility to maintain a work-life balance

How do you measure a “Good Job”?

The Good Job Score Assessment Tool evaluates our four key dimensions of a Good Job and uses a simple 12-item questionnaire with a rating scale of 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree) to create a standardized, statistically reliable, and scalable Good Job Score to measure job quality.
