Healthy companies don't happen by accident. They're the result of an engaged leadership that creates a culture of care. Studies show that happy employees are more productive and their companies have a healthier bottom line.
So why does the Gallup poll tell us that nearly 70 percent of employees are actively disengaged?

Thousands of man-hours had been spent and hundreds of thousands of dollars on switching to the newest technology, only there was one significant and unforeseen challenge - no one was using it. Sound familiar? It happens all the time. In this case, the year was 1999 and unfortunately, since that time, I've seen this challenge happen repeatedly. If you ask people why a piece of new technology doesn't get adopted, you will usually get answers like “it didn't do what it promised,” “the people weren't properly trained,” or it just didn't work with our current processes.
Yet, in case after case, I've witnessed technology not be adopted that would have made a difference if it was used, the people were trained, and would have made current processes easier if implemented.
If you are a large business, you want to avoid a tug of war happening between you and your people as you desperately try to get the ROI out of your new tool. If you are a small business, any money put into a new tool that remains unused can be devastating.

Today, offices will have interruptions of deliveries. Receptionists become unsung heroes navigating deliveries.
Amidst the excitement will be employees who quietly observe and are suffering from loneliness.
In the healthiest corporate cultures we see teams for bonds of friendship that last for years even after they stop working together.
Does it really matter? One in four workers who felt lonely quit their jobs.

Last October, our Founder, Karolyn Hart, was invited to talk to the 200 developers that came together at the Samsung Create! conference. When InspireHUB was founded in 2013, it was immediately retained by the Mandela family to help use technology to fight the pediatric healthcare crisis in South Africa. We eventually morphed to help corporations with their communications. In this talk, Karolyn shares the story of how Progressive Web App technology came to the rescue for InspireHUB clients, what the team learned about using bleeding edge technology and how a small, unknown, scrappy group of devs ended up being the first to do a whole lot of cool stuff.
Grab a mug of something hot and lean in for 20 minutes of fun and inspiring storytelling about what it's like to be a rogue band of developers at the beginning of a technology the world had yet to adopt, from an "Aha! moment" in the back of a cab in Nairobi as our first customer helped inform future design, to the teachable moments that helped pave the way for some of consumer technology's most valuable shifts today.
