  • “Engaged employees make it a point to show up to work and do more work — highly engaged business units realize 41% lower absenteeism and 17% higher productivity. Engaged workers also are more likely to stay with their employer.” - Gallup

  • It isn’t just about saying you have a mission - but proving it: “It will no longer be a choice for companies to embed social impact into their business and brand strategies - it will be required to thrive and compete for talent, customers and investors.” Patsy Doerr, Forbes

  • Mental heath, wellness, and self care will play larger roles in recruiting and retaining top talent; the goals and desires of the workforce is changing rapidly
