Can large companies really innovate

Pragmatic ways to break silos and empower your workforce to drive revenue and savings.

According to a 2019 Gallup poll, 85% of employees were either not engaged or were actively disengaged at work. They don’t feel empowered to make an impact, and they have little, if any, connection to the company’s mission, strategy, or outcomes.
