Managing Individual Behavior
Assignment Overview
Clear organizational goals can drive employee efforts throughout the organization. So can the organization's values. Quicken Loans was named number 5 in Fortune Magazine's 2014 rankings for 100 Best Companies to Work For in America (up from 13th place in 2013). Why? In part because it is a values-driven firm with strong corporate goals that translate into how work gets done on a daily basis.
