How would "Seinfeld" play out in the 21st Century? A new Twitter account shows you.

What the Seinfeld Actors Can Teach You About Hiring. No Joke

What the Seinfeld Actors Can Teach You About Hiring. No Joke | Sitcoms | Scoop.it

Recent research says that the number of engaged employees those who are involved and enthusiastic contributors in the workplace is trending upward somewhat from 2009, which should be good news for businesses. Gallup surveys have long shown that companies with higher percentages of engaged employees grow faster and are more profitable than those that don't.

 

The trouble is, however that how engaged your employees are depends as much on each individual’s unique perspective as it does with any of your efforts to create a supportive environment.
