We’ve talked about how to “Walk the Garden” to assess employees as well as help them develop capabilities to align with the organization’s vision, mission, and values. Now it’s time to talk about how to activate and inspire our workplace AND workforce to further grow and develop employees.  Research is abundantly clear that engaged employees help organizations succeed and bear fruit. There is no silver bullet to increase retention/reduce turnover. However, we do believe that investing in the organizational soil and the culture to nurture and support people will bear the fruits of success!
