We Believe That Culture Can Be Designed

We Believe That Culture Can Be Designed

Successful individuals are building successful companies. However, according to Gallup only 15 percent of employees are engaged in their work globally— that is, involved in and enthusiastic about their work. Low engagement is a barrier to create high-performing cultures and a waste of potential. Engaged employees – the high achievers and some of the high potentials – come to work each day with a sense of purpose, leave with a feeling of accomplishment, achieve higher levels of customer satisfaction, and are more productive. They also have healthier lifestyles, higher levels of wellbeing, and lower absenteeism compared less engaged, or activity disengaged employees. High engagement drives both productivity and profit, so to overlook the importance of engagement would be a mistake.

Excellent leadership, autonomy, and mastery of talents and skills are key factors in attracting and keeping the highly engaged. 30minMBA supports companies with developing their people in leading better, communicating better and performing better. Our vision is to support a 95 percent engagement in the workplace and we live by the following values:
