The Great Resignation: Why This is the Biggest Opportunity We’ve Never Seen to Attract and Retain Incredible Teams

Regardless of which research we subscribe to; the outlook is bleak: employees coast-to-coast are transitioning jobs at rates we haven’t seen since the Vietnam War. And while many of us think this is a threat to our workplace culture and organizational success, the truth is that the opportunity has never been greater to establish a one-of-a-kind culture that attracts and keeps an incredible team. Instead of calling it ‘The Great Resignation’, perhaps it should be called ‘The Great Reconfiguration’. After all, people aren’t leaving the workforce, they’re aligning with a lifestyle that suits them. This is where the secrets lie.

In this head-scratching, insight-filled, and unexpectedly funny keynote, workplace culture and future of work expert Eric Termuende takes us on a journey filled with out-of-the-box ideas that are budget-free and immediately actionable as we work to not just survive ‘The Great Resignation’ but thrive through it. Just because there is a national talent shortage, doesn’t mean our team has to have one too.

In this presentation, attendees will learn:

What it means to ‘plant your flag’ and how to do it

  • How to tell a better story to attract top talent
  • Why the best defence is a good offence and how to retain your best people
  • Where your best recruiters are (hint* they’re closer than you think) and how to give them the free tools they need to build the team
  • What cilantro teaches us about workplace culture and attracting top talent
  • Why all of your eggs should actually be in one basket

In this fully customized, insightful, and takeaway-filled keynote, Eric Termuende shares leadership stories from the Cleveland Browns to Chicago’s Holy Cross Hospital to uncover what makes for an incredible workplace experience. Building stronger remote teams requires a deeper understanding of how we use our time, connect with our people, and tie recognition back to our values.

Today’s presentation was great and I’m delighted at the response from the Team. The videos, the customization, and of course, your presence, knowledge, and energy made it a huge success! I’ve contracted and supported many Executive Leadership Summits for the agency over the years and it is not often that they say…”This is the best Summit we’ve ever had!” There’s been a lot of that type of feedback today and it is much deserved and well-earned praise.

In October 2020, in the middle of this Pandemic crisis, we had the pleasure to work with Eric for one of our episodes of our Dell Technologies Thought Leader Series. In addition to being a very fun person to work with, Eric was very generous of his time and an amazing presenter that our customers love!!!! His story was very inspiring and helped people with a different perspective during these difficult times.
