The Amadori Case: Supplying McDonalds – Organizational Engagement, Emotional Intelligence and Performance
In a three-year study of AMADORI, a supplier of McDonald’s in Europe, emotional intelligence, individual performance, organizational engagement, and organizational performance were assessed. Emotional intelligence was found to predict 47% of the variation in manager’s performance management scores. Emotional intelligence was also massively correlated with increased organizational engagement with 76% of the variation in engagement predicted by manager EQ. Finally, plants with higher organizational engagement achieved higher bottom-line results building a link between EQ->Engagement->Performance. During this period, employee turnover also dropped by 63%.
