Happy talk: According to Deloitte & Touche, most high-level executives surveyed by the management consulting firm recently believe there's a link between how well they treat their employees and how well their companies do. Eighty-four percent of the respondents saw a link between worker treatment and profitability, and 67 percent said their companies are making more of an effort than they were five years ago at balancing the needs of employees with those of customers and shareholders. One way to keep workers happy is to use teams in decision making, and 71 percent of the respondents said their companies use this approach.
