Most organizations can fall into the trap of treating the symptoms of high levels of churn and being reactive, rather than focusing on fixing the root cause of turnover. There’s a dangerous cycle of investing time and resources into hiring, onboarding, and training only for an employee to leave after the first year. Are you stuck in that cycle? Joining us on The Shortlist this week was Lee McQueen, who calls this cycle “talent waste.” Lee is an entrepreneur and the founder a ..read more

Given the immense number of challenges facing organizations at the moment, it’s never been more important to ensure that company leadership is optimized, at all levels. From people managers to C-suite, the trickle-down impact engaged, positive, empathetic leadership can have on the rest of the business cannot be understated.

Talent is the lifeblood of every organization. Very few things impact the success of a business more than the employees within its walls.
