Put an End to the Great Resignation: Targeting Culture Improvement in Your Organization
Mike Grubich, LAK Group

Summary: Three simple words have shaped the world of work since 2021: The Great Resignation. The changes in lifestyle brought on by the pandemic led many to re-think how, where and why they work. Reducing employee turnover can be condensed into one idea: making people happier in their jobs. When the compensation packages are inviting, the company culture built around the success of the entire person (not just their worker personas), and when plenty of room for learning and growing is made available to everyone, the result will be a workforce that is committed to delivering strong outcomes for their employers for the long haul.

Learning Objectives:
