Logitech was recognized as the winner of the 2016 Positive Business Project for its work in creating a community where its employees were “invigorated by their work, more attuned to their passions, and awakened to the potential impact each person could create.” Offerings included personal job crafting sessions and workshops that helped employees define their best selves, build high quality connections, and cultivate gratitude.
