HOW TO LOVE YOUR WORK IN THE 21ST CENTURY: HOW TO MOTIVATE MILLENNIAL AND GEN-Z EMPLOYEES

In this talk, Afdhel explores the existential crisis facing humanity in the 21st century: the fact that only 13% of people like what they do for a living. Especially with Millennials and Gen-Z entering the workforce, companies need to find new ways to attract and retain the best talent by showing them how their work ladders up to positive social and environmental impact.

Using powerful stories of everyday people who have found ways to do extraordinary things in their work, and unlock their purpose, he shows how people within corporations can unlock their purpose, using the revolutionary 'GPS to Purpose' model which asks : What are your Gifts? What are your Passions? How can you be of Service to others?

KEYNOTE

GOOD IS THE NEW COOL: THE POWER OF PURPOSE

Purpose is the buzzword of the moment, with billion-dollar purpose-driven brands like Tesla, Patagonia and Airbnb leading the cultural revolution around business as a force for good.

 

But what is brand purpose? What are some of the myths and misconceptions around it? How can older companies reverse-engineer it into their DNA in an authentic and meaningful way? And how can leaders harness its power in order to create compelling brand propositions for a new generation of socially-aware consumers - as well as attracting the best employee talent who want to do meaningful work?

 

In this illuminating talk, Afdhel Aziz shares examples of brands from Starbucks, Facebook, Tesla, Patagonia and many others to help introduce the topic in a clear and insightful way.
