    The series continues as we learn more about overcoming employee turnover. In the first session we identified the root of the problem with the Great Resignation: it’s actually the Great Discontent, which stems from the long-lasting job dissatisfaction that has existed for decades. We also defined the opportunity in this climate: IVY Alignment.

    In this session, we will discuss how IVY can be used within your organization, and the five steps companies can take in order to implement it. If you have not watched part 1 yet, it is highly recommended. 

    Topics:

    • Brief review of what we learned in the previous session;
    • Introduction to the 5-step solution; and
    • Implementation of the solution from various business aspects.

    Agenda: 

    8:00am to 8:20am - Presentation
    8:20am to 8:30am - Q&A
