CORPORATES

Shaping the next generation of global leaders and innovators

 
 
 
 

Young professionals are the leaders of the future, yet, according to research by Brandon Hall Group organizations focus little attention on developing them. Millennials are already the largest group and will account for 75% of the workforce in 2025. Despite debt and uncertainty around the future of work, they are not motivated by money. Instead, they aim to make the world more compassionate, innovative and sustainable. The success of companies will lie in inspiring, engaging and retaining young professionals to become the locus of thought leadership within an organization. 

“If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near.”
- Jack Welch    

Our programs weaves together concrete tools, experiential learning, and the opportunity for leaders to explore creative responses to everyday leadership challenges. We create an environment of shared learning;  that leave corporates with greater awareness and with systems to engage and retain their top young talent.

ENGAGING & RETAINING FUTURE LEADERS

Our teams have decades of experience working with youth and young professionals. Here are the key highlights of what we’ve learned are the most important in the battle to attract, retain and empower top young talent and how the Academy of Tomorrow can guide you through this journey:

 
 

MAKE HR THE NEW LIFE COACH

According to the Future Workplace "Multiple Generations @ Work" survey, the average young professional lasts in a job less than three years. Rather than focusing on role-specific training, progressive HR leaders are spearheading programs that invest in evergreen skills development and personal learning plans based on individual goals, values and interests. The Academy of Tomorrow brings a team of international executive coaches to work directly with HR and operations managers, to foster effective systems for goal-setting, communication and empowerment of young employees.  Our team will help you to champion the design of a purpose-driven workforce that is aligned with the organization’s values, goals and ultimately culture.

ENCOURAGE MENTORSHIP AND SKILLS ACQUISITION

Young professionals will work hard when organizations get serious about investing in their skill development. Young talent wants the opportunity to learn from more senior experts and their on-the-ground experience. The Academy of Tomorrow trains senior executives to become effective coaches and co-leaders, giving them skills in active listening, questioning and exploration. We additionally help companies design and integrate coaching systems in their management process, so that mentorship and skills acquisition become an integral part of everyday workflow.

DON’T JUST TALK ABOUT IMPACT, MAKE IMPACT

Young professionals want to work for organizations that are transparent about how they are using their technologies, resources and talent to achieve impact. They want to create shared value, and make positive social and environmental changes on a local and global scale. The Academy of Tomorrow helps corporates design engagement strategies for young employees that leverage their innate leadership skills, ideas and social networks to maximize impact.


 

AUTHENTICALLY LEVERAGE THE POWER OF DIVERSITY

Empowering diversity is not just a matter of corporate responsibility, it is an opportunity for a company to authentically leverage the creativity and social richness of different cultures, ethnic backgrounds, generations and sexual orientations. We believe diversity within a team is also key to stimulating divergent opinions and innovative ideas. We work with corporations to evaluate and transform their inclusion strategies to create a workplace culture that celebrates diversity and makes it a critical element  for fostering innovation and productivity.

 

GIVE YOUNG TALENT A VOICE

A 2014 survey by the Harvard Business Review found that employees are more engaged when their four core needs are met: value, purpose, focus and renewal. We work closely with your team to create a collaborative feedback structure that empowers employees to communicate their needs and take ownership for their actions.  We create vertical and horizontal feedback systems to optimize communication and collaboration across teams. Leveraging the Academy’s empathy toolkit will allow us to get into the hearts and minds of your employees, to uncover previously unknown drivers that fuel the needs and behaviors that will help unlock new solutions and more positive relationships in an authentic and meaningful way.
