Today, companies are constantly searching for new ways of engaging employees and building an atmosphere in which employees love to work for decades.

Businesses need to look beyond just benefits and expand their emphasis to include technologies, physical environments, and corporate culture.

In this podcast Lionel Paul David talks about the secret to a great workplace experience.

Their approach should also be proactive and dynamic.
