6 Ways a Digital Workplace Connects Team Members – and Builds a High-Performance Organization

"Employee engagement” is a term you see a lot these days – generally from anguished managers concerned about their disengaged workforces, or from the ranks of consultants eager to jump in with a quick fix to the problem.
