Last week, Google’s mobile friendly algorithm was the main topic of discussion. The algorithm aims at significantly changing the mobile search results to give preference to mobile friendly websites over non-mobile friendly websites.

That is, until now… because the algorithm might soon have more impact than any previous one.

But engagement should not be something you do “on the side,” it should be embedded in all your business activities. We spoke to Cathy Brown, Executive Director at industry-led Engage for Success, about the barriers and the engine of employee engagement.
