Guest Host:

Jacob Morgan, futurist and author of The Employee Experience Advantage

In our last episode, special guest Jacob Morgan described “The Employee Experience Equation” and one of its key pieces: an organization’s “reason for being,” which Jacob said directly affects an organization’s ability to attract and retain talent. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the quitting rate rose to over 3 million employees earlier this year, so retaining your talent has become even more challenging. How can having a strong purpose and “reason for being” help you retain your workforce?

In today’s HR Break Room discussion, Jacob Morgan, futurist and author of The Employee Experience Advantage, returns to: 

  • define the term "reason for being" and discuss the role it plays in building a successful employee experience
  • talk about how having a philanthropic reason for being can attract, retain and empower employees
  • examine the latest developments in the employee's needs for a specific reason for being

 Continue learning more about the employee experience from Jacob Morgan by signing up for our upcoming webinar, “Discover How to Boost Employee Engagement.”
