Purpose-Driven Work Cultures

When purpose is embedded in work cultures, employee engagement and retention rates are six times (6x) higher than when it is not.

In this engaging session, audiences discover:

  • What a purpose-led work culture is and isn’t!
  • The 3 main links to organisational performance.
  • Leading company case studies and talent strategies.

  • Presenters and guests do well on stage.
  • There’s coherence in the agenda and transitions.

  • Disruptions and ‘tangents’ are handled professionally.

Overall, it means everyone can focus on bringing their best to the day and have a great time!
