Don't Let the Elephant in the Room Drag You Down - Avoid These Personnel Pitfalls

There is a sizable elephant lurking treacherously in every CEO’s office, one that could conveniently be ignored if not for one single undeniable truth: numbers don’t lie. Hovering overhead like an Acme anvil, it is the last hold out in a new era of organizational transparency: the cost of people. 99% of businesses spend most of their money on it, and 99% of businesses don’t want to talk about it. Fear has a stronghold in this gladiator’s arena; it is nearly impossible to discuss such a topic levelheadedly.
