As we venture into a new year, now is the time to take a moment to reflect on the events of 2021 while looking forward with hope, happiness, and humanity in 2022. Hopeful is the most common word people have chosen for 2022. Hopeful that we will be granted a respite from the pandemic. Hopeful that we can continue to grow and take lessons learned to become more real, kind, and human. Hopeful that our purpose and passions will align for greater impact and growth.


Another theme for 2022 is Workplace Culture. According to Forbes, workplace culture might just give companies the advance in hiring and retaining talent. At DH, we've been helping orgs globally for over a decade improve their workplace culture. And here are just of few we've helped in the last quarter of 2021.
