The Impact of Employee Fulfillment on Organizational Performance  

William A. Schiemann, CEO Metrus Group
Marisa Harris, Life Mastery Consultant & Coach, and former VP of HR at The CIT Group

Join your executive peers to discuss the role of organizations in employee fulfillment led by Bill Schiemann, author of Fulfilled! Critical Choices: Work, Home and Life and Marisa Harris, Life Mastery Consultant & Coach, and former VP of HR at The CIT Group. 

Finding, optimizing and keeping the right talent and managing increasingly diverse multi-generational workforces are among critical challenges facing business leaders today, as identified by 73 global thought leaders in the recent Rise of HR project (Ulrich, Schiemann and Sartain), as well as in the future of HR CREATE project led by Boudreau and Ziskin. Schiemann’s in-depth look at fulfillment and its connection to engagement, productivity and retention provides some keen insights on these issues. Marisa Harris, a stage IV pancreatic cancer survivor, will share her journey from VP of HR to cancer patient to fulfillment champion, and why her story matters to leaders in organizations.   
HR professionals are in a key role as catalysts in nourishing rich diverse, innovative, high-performance cultures.  But that is unlikely to happen unless they understand the role of fulfillment in their own and their employees’ lives.

Program Take-Aways:

  • Schiemann provides an overview of key insights from his research, including the connection of fulfillment to organizational success, the ‘science’ of fulfillment 
  • Harris describes how she took a business success model, applied it successfully to a life challenge, and then reapplied it with deeper understanding and power back into the business world
  • Key implications for leader development, optimizing performance and retention of high performing employees
