There’s a crisis of connection happening in today’s workplace. Companies are scrambling to attract and retain the best talent as they know employees are asking for more than just the responsibilities outlined in their titles but a vision they can get behind and people they love to work alongside. Currently, there are no solutions that help companies facilitate more human connection in the workplace while collecting data on how to better invest in their people.
