This week host Brian Mac Mahon speaks with Yumi Kimura.

LEAD builds the communication loop around employees, helping them to start cross-team communication.

LEAD generates data through this communication loop, taps that into the existing employee collaboration network, to suggest actions for HR, and prevents turnover caused by relationships and lack of career growth opportunities. In this way, LEAD helps companies retain and improve their best possible team.
