Tips & advice to help you improve your performance
Every manager needs to keep one figure in mind: every time an employee leaves, it can take six to nine months of their salary to recruit, hire and onboard their replacement.

It is a proven fact that individuals perform smarter and better when they are empowered, provided with clear objectives and rewards for achieving them.
Having the ability to make a quick, yet good decision is imperative in all life situations.
