Leading Expert on Talent at Work, Co-head, ADP Research Institute
Marcus Buckingham addresses over 250,000 people around the globe each year, captivating audiences with insights, research, and humor that inspire people (and often entire organizations) to build stronger teams and create happier workplaces.
Building on nearly two decades of experience as a Senior Researcher at Gallup Organization, he founded The Marcus Buckingham Company in 2006 with a clear mission: to instigate a “strengths revolution.” It started, as all revolutions do, with the simplest of ideas: that when people spend the majority of each day on the job using their greatest talents and engaged in their favorite tasks, basically doing exactly what they want to do, both they and their organizations will win.
In other words, companies that focus on cultivating employees’ strengths rather than simply improving on people’s weaknesses stand to dramatically increase efficiency and productivity while allowing for maximum personal growth.
In all of his work, Marcus demonstrates the correlation between strengths-driven, engaged employees and business fundamentals such as turnover rates, customer satisfaction, profits, and productivity. Challenging entrenched preconceptions about achievement to get to the core of what drives success, Marcus’s strengths-based approach is a win/win scenario that, without exaggeration, will define the future of work.
In January 2017, ADP acquired The Marcus Buckingham Company to bring to ADP clients a more scientific and data-driven approach to employee engagement and performance.
