How work friendships improve employee engagement | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
This infographic reports that 50 percent of employees who have a best friend at work say they feel a strong connection to their company.

Employee Engagement Is Declining, but Managers Can Help | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Three key metrics involving recognition, transparency and peer relationships show a decline in employee engagement. All of these issues are fixable with effective management.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Scary statistic ALERT: Quote from the article: "The fact that barely more than one in four employees feels valued is a sad commentary on management."
