    Due to looming talent shortages and increased healthcare costs, organizations across the globe are concentrating efforts to ensure the sustainability of their most important asset, their people. Unlike other business assets - buildings, technology, investments - people have a choice about for whom they work, how much they give to their job and how they impact the people around them. In a knowledge economy, the knowledge, skills, creativity and connections of its people are an organization’s primary, and oftentimes only, performing assets.
