The A/E/C industry’s talent woes have no end in sight. Since the pandemic, historic retirement numbers combined with a weak pipeline of new and returning talent have left more than 10 million positions unfilled. The Great Resignation has only exacerbated the labor shortage.

So, what’s driving this churn? A new research report from the Hinge Research Institute, Culture Clash: The Employee Experience Problem and How to Fix It, shows that the major driver is a deep cultural tension between senior management and mid-career employees. Not only are mid-career employees significantly less satisfied with their firms’ corporate culture than their senior management counterparts, but the two groups also disagree on how to improve company culture. Employees are primarily quitting because of a lack of communication, transparency, and respect from senior management. Do senior executives not see this or are they ignoring it?

Join Hinge’s Karl Feldman and Katy Pultz as they examine the findings of this research report and explore the wide gap in the way mid-career employees and senior executive teams see their firm’s culture. You’ll learn what employees are looking for in an ideal employer. Also, along the way, we offer recommendations you can use to improve your company’s culture—bolstering your employee experience, solidifying your talent retention strategy, and strengthening your recruitment efforts.

What you’ll learn:

  • Where employees and senior executives do not see eye to eye
  • The impact of company culture on employee retention
  • What affects company culture satisfaction
  • How potential employees research your company culture
  • Top methods for improving company culture
  • Key messaging/data points to begin having productive conversations within your organization
