Company Culture, the Key to Capturing Talent and Generating Multigenerational Synergy

What affects productivity, employee enthusiasm, turnover and determines whether star performers stay or leave? The answer is culture. But, culture is not simply about designing incentives, rewards, rules and, structures, nor is it about hanging "values" posters on company walls and having a mission and vision statement. Being able to create a vibrant, enduring and inclusive culture which attracts talents takes intentionality and investment. Not just from the human resource team, but throughout the company. This is especially so as talent markets are shifting and competition intensifies.
