Culture Amp: “Creating a good onboarding experience is no longer a nice-to-have, it’s a necessity. The impact of onboarding is felt in terms of years, not weeks, and by teams, not just individuals. A good onboarding experience means people become productive sooner and stay longer, the benefit of which is felt by the individual, their team, and the company.”

Huffington Post: “David Lapin, founder of Lapin International, Inc., and author of Lead by Greatness, also believes that great leaders must possess both character and competence. Lapin helps executives and leaders discover their greatness, inspire their teams and transform their companies.

Forbes: “All your leadership development, succession planning, performance management and employee engagement strategies should be designed to support and enhance your desired culture. It sounds intuitive, but many company leaders don’t focus the right amount of attention on influencing a culture that will set the foundation of who they are, how they act, how they treat each other and how they run their business.”
