Lew Bayer is also the author of the recent business bestseller, “The 30% Solution – How Civility at Work Increases Retention, Engagement and Profitability ” ( http://www.the30percentsolution.com ).

“The 30% Solution offers organizations a proactive civility solution- a structured, competency-based plan for changing their workplace culture. Organizations must plan, and then implement, this type of change, or, in not doing so, they must expect to pay the high costs of incivility in their workplaces. The benefits of incorporating civility into the workplace, as detailed in research by Weber and Shadwick, include up to 30% more revenue than competitors and four times increased likelihood that employees will be highly engaged. Further, civility training could result in your organization being 20% more likely to report reduced turnover – all of these outcomes are both measurable and significant.”

Lew Bayer is available for media interviews.

Local affiliates are also available to speak to media.
