21st Century Social Contracts Research

Workplace Power Institute Presents 21st Century Employer/Employee Social Contract Debut Material at ASTD Conference in Orlando, Florida

Atlanta, GA (May 12, 2011)  Karla Brandau, CEO of Workplace Power Institute (WPI) will present new research on the 21st century employer/employee social contract at the American Society for Training and Development Annual Conference & Exposition in Orlando, Florida on Wednesday, May 25.

In the multi-faceted landscape of employees in the workforce today, the original research presented by Brandau, gives insight into what today’s employees need from the corporate leadership team to stay engaged and persuaded to give discretionary effort.

“The corporation that can succeed in getting discretionary effort from a large number of employees is the corporation that will keep their organization on solid financial footing and surge ahead in productivity and profits,” says  Brandau. “Our research discovered four levels of sophistication leading to the ultimate level of discretionary effort: a self-actualized employee contributing from free will and operating as an ‘intrapreneur’ in the organization.”

The research was a combined effort between Brandau’s Workplace Power Institute and Principle Dynamics CEO, Douglas Ross of Augusta, Georgia.
