Naturally, every business wants to build a workplace culture strongly conducive to enthusiasm and creativity. After all, without these ingredients, your business could struggle to unlock the potential capable of giving you a crucial edge on your corporate rivals.
Still, how exactly you are supposed to foster this kind of corporate culture could escape you. Much of the effort, you might think, should be in your choices of employees. After all, the right people are the jigsaw pieces for creating the right team and, thus, the right workplace mindset… surely?
