Engaging your employees isn't a once-a-year process.
The longstanding cycle of annual input from employee engagement surveys is wrought with shortcomings that only serve to further disengage your employees.

DevOps is a fundamentally different way of working that requires careful attention to human and cultural dynamics, and cannot simply be implemented with tools. Being intentional about the human and cultural aspects of a DevOps transition, as well as the infrastructure components, can help expedite this new way of working.
By 2018, 90 percent of organizations attempting to use DevOps without specifically addressing their cultural foundations will fail, according to Gartner

Super excited to attend this year's Denison Best Practices Forum focused on user experiences and lessons learned in the space of organizational culture assessment and evolution in Del Ray Beach, Florida. If you're interested in this topic as many are, it's certainly worth looking into.

For decades, choosing the life of military spouse meant that women (over 91% of military spouses are female) usually had to give up any career aspirations in lieu of their husband’s career. With constant moves and the responsibilities of taking care of children while alone, military spouses found it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to pursue professional careers. These spouses were often forced to take jobs well below their education levels and their professional ambitions in order to support their military families—until now.
A growing number of military spouses are now finding entrepreneurship to be a viable solution, giving them the flexibility to create “mobile businesses” that they can manage and grow from wherever the military may take them.

How to be intentional about the departure of a founder.
While challenging, founders have an opportunity to be proactive about preparing their organization for the time when they finally make their exit.

Shawn Overcast shares her thinking on the ROI of corporate culture in her latest article on the gothamCulture blog.  
However intangible or touchy-feely it may seem, measuring the bottom-line ROI of corporate culture is possible.

The growing interest in employee benefits has hit a fevered pitch this year. Many large organizations like Netflix, Microsoft, and Facebook have all recently enhanced their benefits packages. Others, like Gravity Payments, made a splash in the headlines with news of higher wages across the board.

As a result, I’ve had plenty of fodder for recent articles on the topics of interesting employee benefits programs, as well as the potential dangers of companies attempting to “keep up with the Joneses” with sometimes outrageous offerings.
Rather than simply keeping up with your competitors, benefits should help attract and retain the right talent and help your employees succeed in their roles with your company.

From tangible indicators such as finding work elsewhere, to more subtle ways like disengaging, or even engaging in more passive-aggressive behaviors, there is no shortage of ways employees provide their employers with feedback. Unfortunately, all of these methods result in degraded business performance in order to get the message across.
