What Can An Organizational Mindset Give You In Life?

Businesses that don’t have a good organizational structure, don’t last long or they go through a period of tumultuous reform. Case in point, Boeing is going through this very thing. The company has had a breakdown in accountability and the organization is lacking in every department.

Stop Neglecting Your Health In The Workplace

This may come as a shock: Desk jobs can significantly shorten your life expectancy. It is time for a wake-up call. Your workplace can affect your physical and mental health in ways you may not realize.
