Ultimate Software

Decision-makers love data. In fact, in the sixth annual “ Big Data Executive Survey ” representing senior executives from 57 large corporations, 99% of responders reported transitioning to a more data-driven culture and a full 97.2% had invested in Big Data and AI initiatives.

15Five

For years, leaders in the HR/Management space, academics, and top business minds have all sought to define organizational culture. They have largely failed. This is, of course, no easy task.

Are these leaders missing the point?

An excerpt from Staying Power . Who’s the Real Flight Risk? Why do people stay at your organization? Is it because they’re passionate about the work they do?
