Corporate Team Building & Training

Team Building, Employee Engagement, & Millennial Retention Programs

In 2016, only 32.6% of employees considered themselves “engaged” in their work.  This lack of engagement costs US companies $30.5 billion annually in lost productivity.

What are you doing to ensure that your company doesn’t fall into the trap of disengagement?  One key way to combat potential turnover and increase productivity is through professional development. The majority (87%) of employees say that professional development is “very important” to them and engaged Millennials are 64% less likely to switch jobs.

NOTO is here to help you retain, educate and empower your employees.  We provide personalized professional development training to ensure your company is meeting your employees where they are to increase profitability and productivity in your organization.  Your customized training can be delivered in person or virtual via Zoom as:

 

  • One-Hour Lunch and Learn
  • Half Day (Two or Three Hours)
  • Full Day (Six Hours)

Communicating Beyond Our Differences: Strategies for Conversation in a Diverse Workplace

Gen Z is the most diverse generation in American history followed by millennials.  This shift in demographics has created a much-needed space for us to take a step back and identify how our words and actions impact those around us.  The big question is: how do we achieve an authentic understanding and appreciation of one another with so many different people in the mix?  It begins with communicating across our differences and with candor. It is essential to understand not only who these generations and the ones that come before them are, but what common phrases we might be saying that could be offensive.  The key is to find alternative language to engage in open conversation.
