Even as technology increasingly mediates our interactions with the world and with each other, interpersonal relationships still form the foundation of our society. In companies, such relationships exist between employees and management, among workplace colleagues, between organizations and their clients and vendors, and in many other areas.The leaders in your company can play a very important role in developing and strengthening relationships within it. In the feature article for this issue, “Developing Young Leaders for Tomorrow,” Riya Sander provides strategies that organizations can implement and use to develop their future leaders.

Regardless of how long employees stay at the same company, though, they still want to connect with their colleagues and the organization. In “6 Easy Ways to Foster a Sense of Belonging,” Amanda Groves writes about
how companies can encourage this connection.
In “Building Relationships with Unsuccessful Candidates,” Elizabeth Silas-Havas explains why every organization “should focus on providing a good candidate experience to all job seekers who come its way”—including those the company chooses not to hire.
Sometimes one of the best things companies can do to help foster connection is to encourage employees to interact directly with each other more—or maybe even insist on it. In the Watercooler column for this issue (“A Radical Proposition: Phone-Free Conference Rooms”), Mike McKerns offers one suggestion for how to accomplish this.
At Advanced Resources we, too, believe strongly in the power of connection. Let us help you determine the best ways to strengthen the connections within (and outside) your organization!
