Sixth in a series on workplace culture “If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.” – Albert Einstein A business’ fate is determined in large part by its culture.

How I See Our Culture – David Ogilvy

How I See Our Culture – David Ogilvy
