It spotlights the fundamental nature that Company Culture plays in maximizing productivity, profitability, and people loving their work.
Company Culture is the most important business conversation happening all over the Globe. Companies are struggling to understand and create how the world of work needs to change to make it a better place for all. There is a direct correlation between only 16% of Executives saying their Company Culture is where it needs to be and the fact that only 15% of employees are engaged worldwide.
