The Bottom-line Impact of
Freedom at Work

 

Check out the bottom-line results of an independent study
of the Freedom at Work™ leadership model. 

graph1
AVERAGE culmulative 3-year Growth rate (%)

700% Growth

According to an independent analysis, companies that practiced the proven Freedom at Work™ model approached on average 7 times greater revenue growth over a three-year period compared to S&P 500 companies.

In other words, WorldBlu clients achieved a staggering 103% revenue growth rate compared to the S&P 500 companies which only achieved a 15% revenue growth rate during that same period.

graph2
EXIT RATE DURING THE 2008-2011 GREAT RECESSION

Superior Resiliency

During the Great Recession, over 10% of companies failed (meaning they went out of business), whereas WorldBlu companies practicing the Freedom at Work™ model had only a 4.6% exit rate, proving to be much more resilient during challenging economic times.

In short, 95% of WorldBlu clients practicing the Freedom at Work™ model survived the Great Recession.
