The state of a company’s culture is one of the top 10 reasons an individual leaves an organization. No longer are the days when a paycheck and medical benefits (although a great work-life balance sure does help!) are enough to keep an employee on the roster. And what is at the heart of it all? The people. So if you’re looking to evaluate your current workplace culture, make a huge pivot, or continue to nurture a great one — make sure you keep your people in mind.
