It’s been another great year for Select International’s blog. We set new records for number of views, shares, and subscribers. That’s a direct result of our goal for this blog. We always try to create quality content that informs, educates, and sometimes entertains our readers. In 2016, we published 124 posts on this blog. That’s more than we’ve ever published, and it has really paid off.
With the year ending in just a few days, we thought it would be a good time to countdown our top 5 blog posts of the past year, just in case you missed any.

Before you know it, a great culture may have slipped down a few notches. This checklist will help you double-check your culture, and make sure that you’re still on track.
