“Employee and talent management are crucial elements for the success of a business. Many programs offer culture and behavioral change interventions, but oftentimes they are temporary changes that only last a short period of time after the intervention. Positivity’s program focuses on lifeplace not workplace training, which means the goal of the program is a lasting habit in all walks of life rather than a temporary change in only a work-related behavior. By focusing on overall behavioral change, by recording each activity, and then by working one-on-one with a coach, Positivity’s program really helps individuals transform in a lasting and positive way.”
