There is a war for talent taking place on a global scale, and the future belongs to forward-thinking organizations that are focused on creating and sustaining a dynamic and compelling workplace culture. 

Since 1998, Eric Chester has been the leading voice in attracting, managing, motivating, and retaining the emerging workforce. As an in-the-trenches workplace researcher and thought-leader, Chester has cracked the code on the tactics and strategies companies that are recognized as “best places to work” in their respective industries are using to win the talent wars. 

On Fire at Work: How Great Companies Ignite Passion in Their People without Burning Them Out (2015) is Eric’s 4th leadership book, featuring top-tier leaders of the world's best places to work who share their best practice strategies for getting employees to work harder, perform better, and stay longer.

His previous release, Reviving Work Ethic – A Leader’s Guide to Ending Entitlement and Restoring Pride in the Workforce (2012) is the first business book on developing soft skills and core work ethic values since 1904.  He is the Founder of The Center for Work Ethic Development and created a work ethic training curriculum that is being taught at hundreds of schools, colleges, workforce centers, and organizations all over the world.

Eric Chester has delivered more than 3000 paid keynote speeches on three continents and is a 2004 inductee into the National Speakers Association’s acclaimed Hall of Fame.  Companies that have invited Eric back multiple times to keynote annual conventions, conferences and meetings include Harley Davidson, McDonald’s, Sprint, Great Clips, and ALCOA, to name a few.

ON FIRE AT WORK - HOW GREAT LEADERS IGNITE PASSION IN THEIR PEOPLE WITHOUT BURNING THEM OUT

After interviewing highly acclaimed C-level leaders across all industries, Eric Chester has uncovered the practices and principles that Best Places to Work award-winning companies and great leaders are using to go beyond merely engaging today’s rapidly changing workforce, but to ignite what he terms “On Fire performance.”  Through a highly entertaining multi-media presentation, audience members discover the best practice ideas, tactics, and strategies these esteemed employers use to consistently attract and retain top talent, encourage innovation and collaborative thinking, and inculcate the desire to out-perform yesterday’s best.  Based upon the groundbreaking research in his fifth leadership book, On Fire at Work: How Great Companies Ignite Passion in Their People without Burning Them Out (Sound Wisdom, Oct. 2015), leaders, managers, and supervisors walk away with actionable ideas for building an invincible army of entrepreneurs who take pride and ownership in their work. 

Uplifting, inspiring, and content-rich, it’s impossible to experience “On Fire” without catching fire and igniting the passion for achieving excellence in those around you. 

Take-Aways: Participants will discover the secrets and proven strategies that renowned companies and legendary leaders are using to:

  • consistently attract top talent with minimal recruiting.
  • onboard new employees to make a lasting impression and cement their commitment from day one.
  • create, develop, and reinforce the “7 pillars of an On Fire workplace culture” i.e. Compensation, Alignment, Atmosphere, Growth, Acknowledgment, Autonomy, and Communication.
  • eliminate employee burn out, significantly reducing costly turnover.
  • remain relevant to the emerging workforce as they develop young talent into future leaders.
