Healthy Buildings –Healthy and productive workspaces
Thriving Worklife – corporate culture which empowers employees
Use assessments, coaching and courses to make your work culture match your talent’s expectations of a great workplace, to drive productivity and the desire to stay.
Thriving Work Life Design was founded on the belief that high talent individuals, especially in early or mid-career, frequently evaluate whether the company and job are meeting their highest career aspirations. Especially after they master a job, they can start to see the deficiencies in the organization’s culture very clearly. And they start to resent things they put up with prior to job mastery. This resentment, though hidden from leadership, leads to a slippery slope of “intent to quit”, resulting in tangible costs to your organization.
With 2 or every 3 team members at least somewhat disengaged at work (Gallup), this hidden discontent is a huge risk.
Let us help you learn what your talent really wants vs. what they think they get in your work culture, and take positive, strategic action for retention, using proprietary methods that quickly reduce your risk.
Thriving Worklife Design also offers online courses for career professionals as they rethink their future and answer the compelling question “How can I ensure I have work that frees my soul, feeds my mind, and fills my wallet!℠”
