Here at MT, we've long been interested in the psychology of the workplace. However much some people try to break it down into figures on a spreadsheet or assets on a ledger, business ultimately comes down to human relationships - and that's what makes working life so rich and complicated. So for our brand-new blog site, we wanted a specialist to talk about what makes leaders, managers and employees tick on a day-to-day basis, and in particular, how the new business climate is changing people's attitudes and perceptions. So we're delighted to have teamed up with specialist consultancy Pearn Kandola. In the coming weeks, senior partner Professor Binna Kandola and Head of Development Stuart Duff will be pulling no punches as they share their thoughts on the stories making the headlines.
