Embracing Truth and Overcoming Fear In the Workplace
January 15, 2018
Workplace culture" is admittedly still a bit nebulous for many. In fact, that is one of the problems we set out to address at WorkXO: we must give workplace culture a common language, make it more accessible, and learn to quantify/qualify/understand it. Human Capital Management, in general, is something that requires a great deal of customization to fit the distinct needs of an organization. WorkXO, therefore, feels like we owe it to our audience - and to the community - to share the diversity of thought on these important topics. The following is just one perspective - from an outside, non-WorkXO entity. And we're ok with that. In fact, we're cool with it. But it doesn't necessarily mean we agree with it entirely. Enjoy!

During the month of January, we're going to explore that experience and why it is the world of work just can't seem to get it right. We'll also leave you with some crowdsourced advice and insights on how to stem the tide.
