    The Fourth Wave: The Future of Work, Engagement, Well-Being & Inclusion
    The research is clear. Diverse, inclusive, and happy work environments are performance enhancers. They are characterized by higher productivity, less turnover, and more resilient teams. Leaders who know how to cultivate positive emotion tap into an endless well of psychological capital—hope, optimism, confidence, resilience, and belief—that has the power to keep people and teams innovating, creating value, and becoming more successful even in tough times. Increasingly, employees are looking for more purpose and meaning in their work. More than career paths, they want to feel alive at work—that what they are doing is making a positive difference. Yet many organizations fail to create a positive, healthy workplace culture. Why? Because it seems elusive, hard to measure, and hard to prove ROI. So how do you get there? With a little bit of help and inspiration, it’s both possible and delightful to turn on the faucet of joy, humor, love, hope, and compassion at work. Everyone’s talking about well-being, but no one’s telling you how to do it.

    Attend this keynote and learn the real, tangible, and actionable steps to building a better workplace culture, using a proven method for culture change.

    Remodel Your Current Onboarding Program: 25+ Ideas for Welcoming Your New Employees Home
    When someone comes to your home, you welcome them, not “onboard” them. It should also be true when new hires come into our organizations; you should create the conditions in which they feel welcomed and assured that they have made the right choice to join your company and team. Of course, this is not a one-and-done approach that is accomplished on their first day, but a series of experiences a new hire has over their first many months. In this session, you will fix up your onboarding program just like you would remodel your house.

    After interacting with a variety of materials and activities, you will walk away from this workshop with an initial draft of a welcome process for your organization, which will include specific implementation plans. The best part of all? You choose your own path and plan for getting there. In this session, you will:
    • Review the comps: Identify best practices from companies known for their best-in-class new-hire welcome programs.
    • Do a market analysis: Review your current process, systems, and approach to welcoming new employees.
    • Assess your foundation: Complete a gap analysis between your organization’s current approach and benchmarked companies.
    • Create a blueprint: Select from an à la carte menu of welcome activities to create your own, unique new-hire welcome experience that accomplishes your organization’s objectives.
