"The spirit of an organization is created from the top."
Are your People aligned with the objectives of your business?

During the recent recession, many companies were forced to make difficult decisions about the most efficient use of their assets - including their human assets. The shift to defensive strategies left many companies dealing with the impact of staff reductions, wage freezes, and the devalued employee incentives.

These companies discovered that employees were more satisfied and more productive in a collaborative workplace.
