In a post-recession corporate world, culture has become the new competitive advantage. A new white paper from Ryan Estis & Associates examines how leaders can follow proven best practices to create a positive culture and lead teams of engaged, confident, motivated employees. The white paper, Winning with Culture: How Leadership Drives Engagement & Performance, includes new research on leadership and employee engagement from Modern Survey and insight from leaders at companies with top-rated employee engagement: technology company Red Hat, agricultural credit group Farm Credit Services of America and Minneapolis health care system Park Nicollet Health Services.
