Introduction

The impact of Covid over the past few years has been broad reaching and perhaps unmatched in our lifetimes. First and foremost, it has been a ‘People’ event.

Creating a successful hybrid office

The pandemic altered our lives with seismic effect. Long enduring norms have and continue to be questioned and one of the most dramatic changes is how and where we perform our work.

The CFO Guide to Gratitude

Employee engagement is no longer an HR problem, it is a business problem.

If you are reading this it’s likely because your company is thinking about doing something more for the team. Gallup reports that only 22% of employees are engaged in their work. If you could increase engagement, here’s what you stand to gain:
