Better Boards is pleased to present "The Great Resignation...or the Great Rethink" in partnership with Samantha McGolrick, Creator @ Lead with Heart in the Boardroom.

The board’s role in cultivating a culture where employees feel they matter

The “Great Resignation” has created a flurry of talent leaving the for profit sector in search of more meaning from their 9 to 5, and the not-for-profit sector is well positioned to capitalise on this watershed moment. Unfortunately, the sector is fatigued and at risk of burnout, with a 31% increase in people feeling frustrated, cynical, or exhausted at work since the pandemic began.

The “Great Resignation” is far from over and the influx of talent won’t stay for long when people start to recognise the early signs of employers who don’t care enough about employee wellbeing, health and safety, beyond “COVIDSafe”.

In this session we will explore:

  • Two deeply rooted assumptions that are hindering your organizational wellbeing, health and safety efforts.
  • A practical tool that will assist you and your board in resolving differences and learning from one another.
  • What is regenerative leadership, and why it’s no longer nice to have.

Join Samantha McGolrick as she shares how NFP boards can Rethink employee health and wellbeing faster and better than for profit boards, and use their influence to cultivate a culture where employees and management feel they matter, leading to better client service, higher staff retention rates, and an even more attractive sector for talent.
