However, all is not lost in a prevailing business. With NBI Brain Profiling of personnel in identified problem areas, certain internal alterations of positions versus profile-types could provide the edge-tipping difference to any business. Even the overall wellness of an organization as such, especially those who suffer from personnel negativities, can also be measured. Once the survey has been completed and the results drawn, one can…
