Look Up! with Ciel Solutions

Many corporate and medium-size business operations are unsustainable, with decreasing margins and difficulty attracting excellent talent. Stressed and sick employees are working ineffectively, and silos are a corporate hallmark. Innovation is acquired, not fabricated, and intrapreneurship is rarely considered. Without thoughtful succession planning and drastic changes to workplace structure, 40% of Fortune 500 companies will lose their place, if not their names, in 10 years. Ciel challenges you to look up.
