Culture and Engagement are top priorities
Leaders across all industries are putting a higher focus than ever before on company culture.
Where was this decades ago?
It’s not that companies didn’t care about their culture.
Instead, it’s today’s workforce that demands a more nurturing environment.
A recent Deloitte study showed that 87% of organizations named company culture and employee engagement as top concerns.
Even more striking?
About 50% called the problem, “very important.”
Here’s why: a new generation of employees demands more.
Mostly gone are the days of simply putting in an honest day’s work for a paycheck.
The new generation of workers want meaningful work.
They want to make an impact, and they want a company that cares more about them than its own profits.
So what does that mean for college athletics?
The same way that corporate America has shifted toward a culture and engagement-laden approach, athletic departments must also prioritize employee experience.
Like the CEOs in the Deloitte study, is this one of your department’s top concerns?
If not, shouldn’t it be?
