The way people feel at work -i.e. their engagement and well-being levels- profoundly influences their performance. 

Now, consider this: more than half of U.S. workers (52.3%) declare themselves unhappy in the workplace. One in four employees feel ignored by their manager while one third consider that their supervisor focuses on their weaknesses. The numbers are even worse around the world.

  • Superior customer experiences are created consistently
