  • Regardless of which research we subscribe to; the outlook is bleak: employees coast-to-coast are transitioning jobs at rates we haven’t seen since the Vietnam War. And while many of us think this is a threat to our workplace culture and organizational success, the truth is that the opportunity has never been greater to establish a one-of-a-kind culture that attracts and keeps an incredible team. Instead of calling it ‘The Great Resignation’, perhaps it should be called ‘The Great Reconfiguration’. After all, people aren’t leaving the workforce, they’re aligning with a lifestyle that suits them. This is where the secrets lie.

Just because there is a national talent shortage, doesn’t mean our team has to have one too.

    • What it means to ‘plant your flag’ and how to do it
    • How to tell a better story to attract top talent
    • Why the best defence is a good offence and how to retain your best people
