Recruiting and Retention in Historic High Turnover

Posted On March 4, 2022

High retention workplaces have become more and more rare as our new Covid-present world attempts to reenergize itself. Both job turnover and demand for workers is at historic and shocking levels. Businesses’ inability to find and keep workers, no matter the pay, perks, or seniority, is real. The rare few workplaces that have not struggled to hire and retain all tend to have a few things in common: They have spent years intentionally building a culture designed to address employee needs both in and out of the workplace; Leaders have been groomed to help employees discover their own inner motivations… Read More

Posted On April 12, 2022

Extraordinary turnover. Mental health challenges leading to mental health awareness. Diversity and inclusion priorities. Supply chain nightmares. Vaccine controversy. Political divisions. Trembling stock market. Inflation forecasts. Partridge in a pear tree. Goodness. The trends shaping today’s workplace and marketplace are, each on their own, worthy of a news cycle headline. But in today’s upheaval, they’re happening simultaneously. Which of the trends making headlines will impact the workplace and marketplace most?

Life Stages

Posted On March 4, 2022

Life has chapters. As we progress through life’s chapters, new priorities surface and old priorities fade. As each chapter closes and a new one begins, the priorities shuffle yet again. The chapters and shuffling start at birth and end when we end. Many of the most important and volatile chapters of our lives occur during our working years. Getting married. Giving birth. Aging parents. Empty nesting. Commonly called “life stages,” these chapters are common amongst our society. Within the workplace there are chapters, too. Onboarding as a new hire. Learning to lead. Learning to take direction. Learning to manage. Mentoring… Read More

Selling Across the Generations

Posted On March 4, 2022

The Gen-Savvy Financial Advisor

Posted On March 4, 2022

For decades, financial services professionals have focused on demographic groups that are now moving into and past retirement.
