Building a People-first Culture

Blog Article


Amanda Hansen | AdvancedMDAt AdvancedMD, “people-first” has become intrinsic due to the nature of our business.

In Break All the Rules, Buckingham points out: “People leave managers, not companies.” Managers need to show employees they care about them as individuals. Here are some areas to prioritize.
