    Program summary

    How Do Organizations Recruit and Retain Employees Through the Great Resignation? Across industries, employers are being forced to “ride the wave” of the Great Resignation. How do we stem the tide and stabilize attrition? Recent global research by McKinsey discovered that 58% of employees are considering quitting or changing professions.

    Employers assume the attrition is because people are looking for a better job, an increase in compensation or better work-life balance. While important factors, the most important reasons cited by employees were not feeling valued by the organization, not being recognized by their manager and not feeling like they’re aligned with the organization’s values. 

    What Can Leaders Do? If leaders want to reduce attrition, employees need regular constructive feedback, mentoring, opportunities for development and feel that their input is valued. To recruit, retain and promote talent, employees need to feel connected. To create that culture of connection and diversity, leaders need cultural intelligence (CI). 

    What is Cultural Intelligence? Cultural intelligence is what enables us to be in conversation with a person who has a different perspective or background. As a person develops the skills to show compassion for others who have a different context or experience, they’ll be able to speak and act in ways that show genuine respect. At home this creates more genuine productive relationships; at work this creates more collaboration, innovation and retention because people can bring their authentic selves to work.

    Learning objectives  

    This session will enable you to:

    • Discover the value of creating a diverse organization where everyone is valued & seen
    • Explore the stages of CI that helps and hinders genuine productive relationships
    • Learn three tools to increase employee engagement and what to do to start today
