5 Tips to Rescue Your Workforce from the Digital Skills Gap with Xavier Sillon

Re-inventing Human Resources: Intrapreneurship and how to revamp your organization inside out

Today, organizations need entrepreneurial people. In our daily work life the internal entrepreneur (intrapreneur) embodies an attitude of personal commitment, understands the big picture, and has a passion for her work. Increasingly, professionals want much more than to just pay the bills and organizations realize that it takes enthusiastic people with a personal vision to maintain a healthy and thriving culture. To launch intrapreneurialism, leadership teams are now wondering how to "turn-on" the passion of their workforce. CEOs want and need people to embody a self-directed attitude to bring in new business, and do it because it matters to them.
