They've built a great product to help organizations create amazing cultures. (for what they charge, they better!) And if you’re here because you're evaluating LEON Insight vs. the McKinsey OHI or looking for McKinsey OHI alternatives, then you’re already doing the right thing by finding a diagnostic tool that systematically reduces turnover, optimizes high-performers, and improves organizational well-being.
Sure some features and data insights are different between the two diagnostic tools (which we get into further down this page if you're interested). Still, the most significant difference is who we are as a company and our mission as an organization.
McKinsey and the McKinsey OHI was built by a team of high-paid consultants to help improve the "health" of organizations and organizations only. For over ten years, the founding team at LEON has been building Wellness Intelligence technology and diagnostic services in the world's most competitive marketplaces. As a result, clients such as Olympic organizations, Fortune 500 companies, and fast-scaling start-ups trust LEON to improve the well-being of their organizations AND their people.
So, long story short: if you're an organizational leader looking for an always-on, always-learning diagnostic built to help you accelerate organizational well-being, improve the health and happiness of your people, and playbook recommendations made for success – all while delivering exceptional customer experience at a fraction of the price – then you're in the right place. We created LEON and the Wellness Intelligence category for you.
We get it. So the rest of this article is for you. We sat down with a few of our top Performance Managers (LEON's version of a McKinsey consultant) and our best customer success managers to help write this article and asked each of them:
"Hey, what would you say if you had to write an article breaking down the top reasons why people pick LEON Insight vs. McKinsey OHI?"
They gave us a handful of clear answers that should help you.
We built the category of Wellness Intelligence. And (spoiler alert) here's the #1 rule: Use real-time, personalized, and holistic diagnostic surveys with your leaders and employees to accelerate organizational well-being.
Because we know from working with thousands of high-performing teams that while a healthy organization matters, a healthy organization does not happen without assessing the health of its people. However, the McKinsey OHI was built to remove the holistic nature of well-being and only to look at organizational well-being from a top-down view. A top-down view from where shareholders and investors reside. In our opinion, holistic organizational well-being deserves both a bottom-up and top-down approach. It deserves a well-rounded strategy that works to impact the overall resilience, health, and happiness of every single person in your organization - not only shareholders.
Because we built LEON Insight for organizations of all sizes, we understand the modern tech stack and integrations deserve a seat at the table. With LEON Insight, you can use data from Salesforce, Hubspot, Lattice, Workday, etc., to optimize your Insight data and to truly understand how organizational well-being impacts performance and productivity. In addition, our team of Performance Managers will work with you to understand your technology stack and company KPIs to help build a custom integration model to show a quantifiable ROI for organizational well-being.
LEON Insight is a tech-enabled service - not a team of high-priced MBAs living in your office for a 12-week "engagement." So instead, please focus on hiring great people and scaling your business, not worrying about a six-figure bill each month and doing crazy things to try and avoid a conversation with one of our Performance Managers.
Our pricing is dead simple: you'll know exactly what your bill will be every month, and we won't penalize you for doing your job to improve the health and happiness of your organization. We've got your back!
Every company can send a survey to its people and sell it as robust data. But with LEON Insight, you can take things a step further than the McKinsey OHI and send the right diagnostic survey, at the right time, to the right teams, based on previous responses. This AI-driven work-flow allows a diagnostic process where our team can work to dive deeper into any collected insights and provide you with a current, bespoke and ongoing data set.
And then there's LEON Perform, the only solution that combines benchmarked recommendations, external coaches, and platform partners to improve organizational well-being. LEON Insight identifies and reveals the impactful way to enhance organizational well-being and makes it easy to deliver hyper-targeted strategies, at scale, based on Insight data.
While the McKinsey team and the McKinsey OHI are industry leaders in the space, the inability to focus on the human side of organizational well-being leaves much to be desired. And truth be told, for the cost of a small home in the U.S., we believe that a diagnostic shouldn't give you half of the story. An accurate diagnostic should take into account your people, your technology stack, your trajectory, and your budget.
