OOD DAY FOR: Showing you care, as a survey of employees in 19 countries shows that the No. 1 motivator for them to engage with their company is senior management showing genuine interest in the well-being of their workers.

BAD DAY FOR: Chinese fortunes, as 21 percent of Americans say they have stopped buying all or some Chinese goods after the recent string of product recalls. But while 35 percent said Chinese imports were more dangerous that those from other nations, a majority—55 percent—agreed that the recalls only made Chinese imports seem more dangerous.
