These seven factors form RESPECT. But the research does not stop there. Scores on a specially designed RESPECT index were obtained from over 200 companies worldwide and correlated with various measure of business success. The second step of this massive research undertaking demonstrated that those organizations that best meet employee needs achieve superior business results.
An array of tested and proven recommendations for how to build more “respectful” organizations is provided.
