Engaged Organizations

The Workplace Maturity Model is a framework that defines the competencies and attributes that contribute to a community-centric culture within a team, group, organization, or social network. In community-centric cultures individuals feel seen, valued, and empowered – all the things that increase engagement.

Community-centric cultures generate shared value for every stakeholder. For organizations, strong community cultures improve efficiency, accelerate change, and increase innovation. For individuals, strong community cultures increase networks, trust,  learning, and leadership skills.
