Academic research by the Harvard Business School has examined Egon Zehnder's history, reward culture and the creation of different practices in the mid-1990s. One of the principles that the firm claims for itself - operating as a single profit center - was described in an article by Ronald Heifetz, Alexander Grashow, Marty Linsky in the Harvard Business Review (July 2009).
In his book "Working with Emotional Intelligence", US business author Daniel Goleman introduced his theory of emotional intelligence. In the chapter "The emotionally intelligent organization" he describes various firms, including Egon Zehnder.
