Business is no longer as usual


Work is fine if it doesn't take too much of my
time.
The trouble with being punctual is that no one
is there to appreciate it.
Beat the 5 0'clock rush, leave work at noon!
If you can't convince them, confuse them.
I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your
horn louder.
The road to success..... Is always under
construction.

Its a sad truth about the workplace:
Just 30% of employees are actively committed to
doing a good job. According to Gallups 2013..
50% of employees merely put their time in, while
the remaining 20% act out their discontent in
counterproductive ways, negatively influencing
their co-workers, missing days on the job, and
driving customers away through poor service.
Gallup estimates that the 20% group alone costs
the U.S. economy around half a trillion dollars
each year.

organization is to meet the challenges
of the future.
The biggest L&D challenge is to
help the organization
(read: people) steer itself.
