Most start-ups say they want to hire the most exceptional people, only to offer them the same golden-cage perks that have nothing to do with what any of us are looking for in a place of work.
At Jolt, we got rid of the beer taps, pool tables, game consoles, mechanical bulls, yoga training, power napping, whipped cream munching - basically, all the stuff tech giants use to distract employees from the fact that they're stuck in a job that won't help them grow into the people they want to be, won't enable them to leave a real mark and definitely won't help them figure out how to achieve their career goals. In fact, current workplaces optimize for employee retention, which means their main focus is keeping people in place instead of pushing them forward.
Ninety-one per cent of millennial employees say they don't expect to hold a job for more than three years.
For this generation, personal growth is more important than monetary compensation.
We are not staying for the perks. We're looking to evolve, network, have a positive impact and move on.
This concise audiobook will help you dodge Silicon Valley's cliché, by rethinking the entire employment deal with Chapterships.
Chapterships are 24-month-long work cycles in which an individual is required to complete a mission rather than to hold a position.
During those two years, employees receive access to significant resources to help them complete their chapter. It doesn't matter if you want to switch to another profession, improve your public speaking skills or build your personal brand - an "Employee Success Team", a new term coined in this book, will invest resources in developing the employees instead of spending money on redundant perks.
In this book, Roei, the millennial CEO of Jolt, concisely portrays a unique vision for the future of work. It is a must-listen for any professional who feels that the system is broken.
