Three million people quit their jobs in the US in April, 2017. Three million.

The improving economy has resulted in a 4.3 percent unemployment rate in the US. It’s likely that those folks who quit had a number of job openings to consider.

Why are these numbers important to leaders today? These indicators place greater demands on leaders to create purposeful, positive, productive work cultures, without delay.

A work environment that treats everyone with trust, respect, and dignity will inspire engaged, talented team members to stay with your company – and will attract even more engaged, talented team members to your cool culture.

In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I describe the three vital elements workplaces must demonstrate to boost retention and employee engagement.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) videos that describe proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.

You’ll find my Culture Leadership Charge episodes and more on my YouTube and Vimeo channels. If you like what you see, please subscribe!
