An increased sense of shared values and culture is taking shape, with a heightened focus on building trust and cohesion within teams. Employees want to feel motivated, valued, passionate, and understand that they have purpose.
Engaging your employees in your company’s purpose has never been harder. Environmental impacts brought on through the pandemic such as “quiet quitting,” remote working, a potential pending recession, the great resignation, “act your wage” movement, etc., has only increased the difficulties within these challenges.
In our Looking Ahead Together, 2022 & Beyond report, we surveyed local employers, and they told us what challenges they face, including the #2 ranked outcome, which is the need to rebuild trust, teams, and morale through the development of a people skill pipeline.
Join us for our next webinar as we discuss this outcome and learn how we have responded to employer needs, talking current trends and a sneak peek of upcoming Power Skill courses.
