The study aims to explore the cognitive and emotional aspects of intelligence and its related behavioral and psychological outcomes on employees’ performance. Intelligence is considered as an important predictor for analyzing the employees’ capabilities and their behaviors to perform the particular task. This is a quantitative cross-sectional study based on 300 employees selected from different organizations of telecom industry, Lahore. The study reveals interesting findings about the nature of the relationship between individuals’ intelligence quotient level and their respective performance. Indicating a new line of research that Intelligence Quotient is found to be insignificantly related with employees’ performance revealing that IQ alone is not sufficient for the success of employees. Whereas, emotional Intelligence is found to have significant relationship with employees’ performance signifying that emotional intelligence is more important than Intelligence quotient at workplace.
