Only 50% of millennia's plan to be with their company one year from now. One of the reasons for the growing turnover is exposure to endless choices: what shampoo to buy,

what flavor of coffee to order, what Netflix show to watch, who to swipe right on, what job you want to pursue. With so many options, it’s easy to feel like the grass is greener

or not feel totally confident in your choices.

Even though the average millennial is staying at their job less than three years, it’s not just millennials that are hopping around. The average American of any age is staying at  their job for only about four years. In this program, we’ll focus on the key elements that bring fulfillment to their job and build a deeper connection to their work and purpose. We’ll debunk the idea of bouncing around searching for your ‘calling,’ and instead find alignment between your work and your purpose.



Learning Objectives:

               Learn tactical strategies to increase employee empowerment.

               Discover potential ways to increased workplace engagement.

               Employees view their roles with deeper meaning.

               Enhanced workplace culture with new ideas to keep it consistent.
