appantsIt’s been an exciting year of change and growth for TIGERS® Success Series! We have expanded our team by welcoming several licensed TIGERS facilitators into our fold and added new teambuilding resources, training, and webinars to our lineup.  While it’s hard to believe 2013 is coming to a close, here at TIGERS we are ready to embrace what 2014 has in store for building collaborative teams in the workplace.

During the past year, I blogged on a variety of topics ranging from “roaring out of the recession” to providing the inside scoop on how outstanding organizations remain profitable, retain and hire top talent, and blow away the competition! I also championed innovative entrepreneurs who cast away outdated “business as usual” practices and armed independent business consultants with proven tools and resources to initiate employee-championed change in the workplace.

So how do you gain quick access to this wealth of information? As in the previous year, I will be providing a “recap” of my 2013 blogs for readers. Last year’s recap was met with much success from readers due to the ease of finding blogs and articles that were of immediate significance and value to them.

Beginning with today’s posting, I have listed all blogs and articles that fell under the category of Polls, Research, and Surveys. This category had over 20 blog postings in 2013, so I have broken them down further into more digestible subcategories. This makes it easy to locate at a quick glance the topics and resources that can be put to use right away.

Polls, Research, and Surveys – connecting to the pulse of corporate America

Listed below are the article titles and links to blogs reporting online survey results, research, and poll findings…along with “actionable team building strategies” to put all this up-to-the-minute information to work for your organization or consulting business.

This series of blogs represents the voices of business leaders and employees along with the statistical data of challenges and opportunities found in today’s economic climate and workplace. You’ll find researched insight on topics including: sick days are killing your business, hiring the “right fit” employee, the pitfalls and rewards of social media, and persuasive words to use during meetings.

Without further ado, here are the 2013 postings featuring the voices of the American workforce and the direction the new economy is taking today’s organizations.
