Now available on demand.

*Originally aired Thursday, August 25, 2022


Join experts from ActionsProve, LLC and the Engineering Management Institute as they review an in-depth study of the state of the A/E industry and talent market.

The new research uncovers key workplace issues in a fast-changing world and how employers can attract and retain top talent amidst the Great Resignation and position themselves for greater growth and prosperity.   

In this session, participants will learn about: 


The workplace trends that most impact the A/E industry.  


The gaps that exist between roles, genders, and generations, why employees are choosing to leave, and what they’re looking for from new employers.   


What “people-first” organizations do differently and why they are preferred.   


The type of training most requested and most likely to yield the biggest (and most immediate!) return on investment.    


How firms can create more future-proof, dynamic, and human-centered workplaces.
