big-data2Companies that are organizationally healthy tend to generate more total shareholder returns than unhealthy ones, new research from McKinsey & Co. says.

The McKinsey Quarterly’s latest study of 800 global companies tracked their health by using 37 metrics that make up nine dimensions of the firm’s organizational health index, McKinsey said Wednesday.

From there, the research authors highlighted four likely “recipes” — being leader driven, market focused, quality and productivity conscious, or strong in talent and knowledge core — that could get a healthy organization to perform well.

The study sought to emphasize the correlations found between health, operational success and financial performance for enterprises that follow these practices.
