Health Wise: Human Resource: Employee Engagement
Creating and maintaining a thriving company culture
really boils down to one thing: employee
engagement, because employees are most
engaged when they have a strong sense of
purpose. So define your company’s vision, align
corporate goals around the vision, and
communicate the vision and goals early and often
via a consistent elevator pitch. Each person in the
company should know the elevator pitch to
evangelize the company’s vision.
Every time you eat and drink, you are When it comes to hiring, we all want to hire the best

sets are not the be-all, end-all of good hires. A
super-talented and highly skilled candidate may not
be the right fit for your corporate culture. Finally,
great leaders and managers realize that you have
to be very selective. Hiring the right people at the
right time means making sure each hire’s skills,
personality, and temperament align with the values
and behaviors that the company holds dear.
