Certain office environments kill productivity. Here are some corporate practices that will inject much-needed life into your stuffy culture.

An HR litmus test for detecting jerks

This is no joke. At the California advertising agency RPA, there's actually quite a few road blocks --and safeguards -- in the human resources department to prevent someone from being hired if he or she will not play well with others. This agency has structured itself around a collaborative and open culture that has a policy to prevent the wrong toxic hire.

In this interview, iMedia's David Zaleski speaks with Mike Margolin, SVP and director of audience strategy at RVP, about this workplace hiring practice and why other companies might want to follow suit.
