Truth You Can Act On: 

    1. Make Building Real and Meaningful Connections Your Top Priority. Understand what motivates your people and get to know them personally to support them outside of their work role.
    2. Measure Employee Engagement and Share the Findings with Managers. Empower your managers with data that gives them a roadmap to know where to focus on innovating for change. Be sure to encourage curiosity as a trait in this process.
    3. Hiring Right is Critical. Hire great people – but make sure they’re aligned with your company’s culture and core values.
