The World Economic Forum says we are now entering the fourth Industrial Revolution, one where we no longer are taking steps, but leaps forward. Considering exponential integration of technology and accessibility of information being greater now than ever before, what stories are we telling to attract the right candidates to the workforce? More so, how are we finding purpose in the work we do and happiness in the lives we live? In his presentation, Eric talks about the importance of community and belonging at work. The conversation about the future of work is bigger than Millennials and generations, and spans wider than technology and workplace aesthetic- it is about people and creating a life each of us can enjoy living through the work we do.

Over 90% of the information on the internet today was put there in the past two years. With 40% of corporate America feeling an unprecedented sense of loneliness, and the average person spending over 3.5 hours on our phones a day, the way we connect is changing. The ‘Honeymoon Phase’ of technology is here, and we’re in the eye of the storm. How do we balance the increasing dependency of technology while still getting the most out of the people and relationships around us on a daily basis? What do we need to do to build a modern team that leverages technology, but still gets to know people for who they are. In this presentation, Eric provides tips and tricks that wow the audience and leaves them with tangible takeaways to live a more connected life.

3 Unorthodox Rules to Elevate Recruiting, Retention, Performance, and Ultimately Organizational Success 

Leaders are facing unprecedented challenges, making a competitive edge elusive. Many believe they have a productivity, innovation, or product issue; yet, most organizations have missed the root cause. The truth is, they are facing a talent crisis. Failing to attract, retain, and engage the right people is costing businesses greatly, both in terms of dollars wasted and opportunities missed. With increasing external threats, rampant commoditization, and generational shifts, the problem is only becoming worse. 

Through years of extensive research and practical experience, Eric Termuende has developed a systematic approach to winning the talent war. In this inspiring and actionable keynote, Eric takes the audience on an unforgettable journey, awakening leaders to fresh approaches to sustainable success. He reveals three counterintuitive and extremely powerful steps to boosting performance, beating back competitive threats, and driving long-term shareholder value. 

In this energizing session, audience members will:

  • Embrace a radically new approach to recruiting, boosting success rates dramatically
  • Uncover the biggest myths and blockers of fully-engaged talent
  • Increase retention of top performers, while having low-performers self-select out of the organization
  • Eradicate and replace ‘empty values’ with authentic experiences
  • Become armed for battle with practical tools and takeaways to put into immediate action, including:
    • The most unusual job description, which will yield the exact talent fit for your team
    • How to differentiate your story to new candidates and existing team members as well
    • A next-practice approach to harness employee ownership, buy-in, and engagement
  • Discover unique connection points between talent and leadership, thereby driving loyalty, trust and performance

Redefining Success

We used to strive to live ‘The Dream’, which typically included a nice house with a white picket fence, two kids, a dog, and maybe even a cat. The ‘American Dream’ though, is outdated; the world around us is moving too quickly and the definition of what it means to be successful is changing- fast. The American Dream is really now an American’s Dream – one where each person can have their own view of what it means to be successful. Each requires a different plan and the ability to not conform to what society tells us we need to do to be successful. In this presentation, Eric talks about the evolution of the world we live in today and how technology, changing times, and an continental appetite to break the norm enables us to live a life that makes us all a little happier

Testimonials

I thought your presentation on “Human Capital is Your Most Important Asset” was excellent and the audience was fully engaged for the duration of your session.  The post-conference survey certainly confirms this with many delegates choosing you as their favorite conference speaker.

We have now completed a full year cycle with you (four events) and happy to confirm the investment has been well worth it and you have elevated the Business Transitions Forum brand nationally for Cube Business Media.

Mark Stephenson

President, Cube Business Media

Eric is an absolute pro. He was tasked with closing our 4-day event. He was the 13th speaker, he followed 12 incredible presentations, not an enviable position to be in. Not only did he bring something from every other presentation into his program, but he also wrapped our entire event with a bow. He may have been the youngest presenters on our faculty but ended like a seasoned pro.

Stu Saunders

Founder, EPIC Conference

Eric Termuende presented to our senior leadership and shared his perspective on optimizing culture.  I found Eric to be a highly credible, engaging and relevant speaker that connects with all levels of leadership.  Eric’s insights are well articulated and provide examples and ideas that are critical to an organization looking to improve engagement and retain the right talent.

Dion O. Kostiuk

Vice President, Human Resources & Corporate Services

Relevant, engaging and with some strong practical takeaways for the audience of seasoned Chief Executives of a range of companies from manufacturing to health care to technology to financial services.  He is an excellent presenter and readily relates to senior executives.

Forum Chair, MacKay CEO Forums

Eric is a remarkable thinker, and one of those speakers you see sometimes, but not often enough, who you run around telling everyone about for a long time afterwards. I remember the first time we met, and within a few minutes he had me leaning over the table in the restaurant, fascinated, waiting to hear what would come out of his mouth next. I can count on one hand the number of times that has happened to me; he’s in very rare company. So book him. Listen to him. Take the time to use his ideas. They are a gift.

You most definitely captivated our audience. We appreciate the time you took away from your family and for the attention in adapting your presentation to complement our conference objectives.

What stood out to me about Eric’s keynote was how relatable he was to the entire audience. I feel as though whether you were a graduating student, new grad or a Gen X Mom like me, there was something in his talk for everyone. The concept of defining your own success is very inspirational and Eric was as open to talking about his shortfalls and sacrifices as he was to talking about his “big wins.” I have seen Eric speak at three different events now and he is very astute when it comes to his audience. Each of the speaking engagements has showcased something different, which tells me that he puts a lot of time and energy into meeting his host/client’s needs for the event. I would definitely have him back.

Eric Termuende is a powerful and exciting speaker that truly understands the workforce and its true definition, today.  He tells us that what we may have thought was ‘coming’, is already here.  Through his research and fact based presentation, we start to see what it is going to take to attract, retain and motivate Gen-Y’s….and by the way, we will all love it!  I am onboard with promoting Eric and his team at Gen-Y.  This is true evolution for today and for our future.

Catherine Brownlee Inc.

 

Eric led our attendees through an engaging discussion on Gen Y and their engagement with the workforce. People joined in the discussion with questions and comments, evidence that he reached and motivated them. His fresh perspective challenged our members to be aware of the needs of young talent, and helped them better answer the important question “What do Millennials want?” I endorse Eric as a speaker, and as a thought-leader.
