“Effective workplaces recognize that employees are an organization’s greatest resource and make a critical difference in the organization’s ability to not merely survive, but to thrive. To be truly effective, a workplace—its design, practices and policies—must benefit both the organization and its employees.” http://www.whenworkworks.org
