Introducing the COR Leadership Framework

Paycor empowers leaders to develop winning teams. Our product is purpose-built for leaders. And now, our COR Leadership Framework explains how your organization can use best practices and technology to build a culture of accountability and engagement. The first step is to transform managers into leaders.

Leaders Make All the Difference

The COR Leadership Framework is built upon decades of research indicating that the most effective leaders focus on intentionally coaching their employees towards constant improvement, optimize the performance of their employees and team to meet organizational goals, and recognize and reward their employees appropriately to retain top talent.

Gallup found that 70% of the variance in team engagement is explained by the quality of managers. Great managers drive productivity, loyalty, customer satisfaction, and short- and long-term business success. Bad managers do the opposite.

Paycor’s COR Leadership Framework is your pathway to building a culture of effective leadership in your organization.

Why Leaders? Why Now

60% of HR leaders say “leader and manager effectiveness” is their #1 priority in 2023 (Gartner). Why? Because leaders across the organization disproportionately affect employee engagement.

In the last 6 months, 62% of employees resigned citing “toxic company culture” as their #1 reason for leaving, followed by low salary, poor management, and unsustainable work-life balance (FlexJobs). What do all those reasons for leaving have in common? It all comes from the top.
