Three ways to a better culture & bottom line (Audio)
Billions of dollars are lost every year by corporations through turnover as well as legitimate and non-legitimate sick days. Tens of thousands are lost in productivity and outcomes within a single position if it turns over or if the employee is unengaged in your nonprofit.
Michael Stallard, author of Fired Up or Burned Out, says there are many easy ways you can cultivate what he calls a “connection culture” in your workplace. CausePlanet hosted a live interview with Stallard last week and one of the questions from the attendees generated a response that centered on three steps toward a great culture (podcast).
CausePlanet members: You can play back the full interview with Stallard if you missed the live session last week. Don’t forget to register for our next interview with William Mott, author of The Board Game: A Story of Hope and Inspiration for CEOs and Governing Boards.
