Is not the company that’s out to eat your lunch (although not a bad idea to take them into account).

It’s the allure of autonomy and flexibility.

Which might come from a permanent WFH situation or one with lots of flex.

Or, as the WSJ featured on its front page yesterday, self-employment and entrepreneurship.

The culture of your organization is more important than it’s ever been for recruiting and retaining top talent.

And that talent drives your business results — your bottom line — from launching new initiatives and meeting their deadlines, to spurring innovation and creating more efficient processes, to hanging on to your best customers and giving favorable impressions to new ones.

Simply put: No top talent, no lunch.

The time to attend to your organization’s culture is yesterday.
