How an Accounting Firm Convinced Its Employees They Could Change the World

Bruce N. Pfau, Ph.D.,  KPMG’s Vice Chair of Human Resources and Communications 2004-2016, will discuss his influential Harvard Business Review case study demonstrating the powerful, positive effects of unleashing employees’ sense of higher purpose on workforce engagement, business performance and company brand. Today’s employees want more from work than what they can see in their paychecks or even in their career development; they have an enormous pent up appetite to elevate, re-frame and announce the higher purpose of their work. Providing employees with this opportunity, KPMG drove morale and retention to historic highs and advanced 68 ranks on FORTUNE’s Best Place to Work list, placing it #1 among its Big 4 competitors each year from 2014-2017. 

Space is limited.  Please RSVP!
