Cisco Systems partnered with The Marcus Buckingham Company, an ADP company, to conduct engagement research with a focus on helping employees use their strengths to drive excellence in their teams. Powered by StandOut technology, Cisco Systems, Inc., has embedded the rituals of the world’s best team leaders into the day-to-day practices of the company and found that frequent check-ins between team leaders and team members drives higher employee engagement.

One of the reasons why I think we're here is because of the partnership that we've had with TMBC and ADP to challenge the way we look at traditional HR, not only pushing our companies but pushing the world to think differently about how we work and how we come together.
