People & Purpose


The Great Resignation signals a “purpose gap” particularly among young professionals as many navigate the tensions between personal and business values. How can young professionals, who want more to life, find new ways to work towards building the future they would like to see? And what can their employers offer to earn the loyalty of their future leaders?


  • Nearly 9 of 10 millennials indicated they were willing to take a pay cut to work at a company whose mission and values align with their own, says a 2018 LinkedIn Workplace Culture Report – why is this so important to our young people?
  • How can our young professionals bring together their personal and professional purpose across different sectors in Hong Kong?
  • What are the opportunities for businesses to engage young talents through building a purpose-led workplace culture? And what are the ways to overcome practical challenges and balance business demands?
