(Lessons from the field: What are secrets to Engagement and Retention – and, Employee Passion?)
Employee Engagement, Retention and Development are influenced by workplace culture and the employee experience. It is always a good thing when your C-Suite Team takes ownership of the team/employee experience as a top priority – wouldn’t you agree?

For over 20 years, I’ve worked with C-suite executives and HR leaders from top global companies and iconic brands: The Walt Disney Company, Dole Plc, Amgen, ThermoFisher, Denso Drive, Intel, and Pratt Whitney Rocketdyne/NASA (AeroJet Rocketdyne), to name a few. With commitment to excellence and a roadmap focused on small wins, culture transformation and metrics…your organizational culture of excellence aspirations are just around the corner.
