This organisation demonstrates an effort to create a people-focused culture (eg. Global Jam, People and Culture conference, creating coaching and mentoring culture, etc.). Focus on people is an important indicator about how well the firm is managed, not just the quantitative measures of success. However, quantitative measures also indicate good performance and implementation of the growth strategy.
