October 19, 2018 | Gregg Lederman | Reward Gateway

American workers are disengaged. But you already know that. You’ve probably seen Gallup’s perennially popular stat that only about one-third of workers are engaged. And so you’d think that with the billions companies have spent on engagement efforts, the needle would have moved more.

Since he was born almost three years ago, our son has looked to faces for cues. Almost instantaneously, inside his little, blonde head he looked up at us and wondered: Is this safe or unsafe?

While Uber’s transgressions were severe, they are not alone.  The headlines of the past year indicate that many organizations are still at risk and in need of transformation. What lessons can be learned and how must organizations respond?
