There are many things that make a company what it is, but few factors play as instrumental a role as the staff that that organisation is made up of. Your employees will not only be responsible for your organisation’s output, but they will also give your team its personality and affect the way it gels. They will alter the way that clients and others see your business by acting as ambassadors for your company, and they will contribute ideas and more. Continue reading
If we were forgetting how critical are the massive computer systems that help run our society, then this headline is a massive wake-up call. Montreal’s CGI faces scrutiny over troubled Obamacare site.
