Entrepreneur: “Developing a great company culture is easier when you know what ingredients to put together, and in what measure. It’s kind of like brewing the perfect cup of coffee. You make the brew and take that first sip; and the satisfaction you experience is hard to put in words. You just know it’s good. Here are some companies that exhibit the ingredients of that perfect brew, and why.”
The Future Organization: “Peter Walmsley, the Chief People Officer at GSN Games, is an experienced and committed leader with extensive Executive Human Resources experience in multi-national organizations across the USA; Europe; Asia and North Africa. He has a track record of success in setting the strategic direction, driving organizational change, providing leadership for the function, developing and influencing critical business relationships and delivering results aligned to business goals in places such as American Express and Fidelity.” “Walmsley’s advice for individuals is to embrace change and reinvent yourself periodically.

Forbes: “I spoke to Chris Stark, the co-host of the Hacking Your Leadership podcast, about how leaders can improve employee engagement, the process of hacking leadership, can companies can build stronger cultures, how to find and compete for the best talent and his best career advice.”
Maritz Motivation Solutions: “The utter explosion of digital content presents countless opportunities for learning. Start here to narrow down your search each week in the often overwhelming landscape of employee engagement thought leadership!”
Allen Communication: “The utilization of mobile devices in training is much more than a passing fad. Here are five reasons it is not only economical, but efficient for today’s multigenerational professionals.”
Gallup Blog: “Gallup describes managers’ roles in employee well-being using four concrete, attainable pillars. Managers amplify well-being by creating an environment that empowers employees to manage their own well-being — not by serving as counselors or financial planners. Managers should be well-being conduits — garnering employee ownership and connecting well-being to employees’ firsthand experiences. For companies of any type, size or industry, these four pillars offer a roadmap for creating an outcome-driving culture of well-being.”
