Creating purpose for employees of the future

In today’s world, businesses are valued as much by their interactions and impacts on society as by their financial results. Given this trend, successful organizations are evolving from business enterprises to social enterprises, meaning that they listen to, invest in, and actively manage the trends that are shaping today’s world with a focus on human impact (e.g., customers, employees, community). In this week’s episode, we hear from Lucien Alziari, executive vice president and chief human resources officer at Prudential, about his company’s journey towards becoming a social enterprise, and the role of workforce transformation and HR in driving that change. Later, Deloitte principals Jen Radin, of our health care practice, and Steve Hatfield, our global future of work leader, join to discuss how organizational leaders can effectively navigate and optimize the benefits of the future of work.

Everybody wants to work for a company that they believe in and enjoys doing work that they can see the end results of and feel proud of.
