When the National Society of High School Scholars asked 18,000 Americans, ages 15 to 29, to rank their ideal future employer (from a list of 200), it wasn’t surprising that Google, Apple, and Facebook were high on the list.

However, some of the other entries on the list might surprise you. Surprisingly, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the CIA, NSA, and FBI appeared high up on the list. Surveys have continually found that millennials want to work for companies that value employee welfare, flexible scheduling, and a sense of purpose.

During the last few months I’ve attended great virtual meetings and, unfortunately, quite a few that, well to be honest, sucked. Personally, I’ve gone from zero to hero[ine] regarding Zoom functionality, with multiscreen displays, two camera angles, shared whiteboards, breakout rooms, etc. You name it, my team and I are exploiting technology to ensure our events are interactive, fun, and more importantly impactful.
