Is Intrapreneurship the Solution for Unhappy Employees and Behind-the-Times Businesses?

While many factors contribute to the Great Resignation, Entrepreneur magazine explores one that presents an opportunity to retain top talent: 34% of Americans feel underutilized by their employer, and 47% wish their company would try to understand their skill set better (source: Gloat). Thought leader educator, intrapreneur, and Entrepreneur contributor Frank Theodore Koe, Ph.D, suggests that intrapreneurship is not only the antidote to unhappy, unengaged employees, but it also helps businesses gain a competitive edge. At Intrapreneurship Academy, we also believe intrapreneurship is the solution to engaging, developing, and retaining future leaders so companies can stay competitive, innovative, and relevant in our fast-changing industry. Read more about how a culture of intrapreneurship can transform both your employees and your business below.

The humble and innovative beginnings of the cable industry in Colorado sparked one of the most important industries in the world.

Riding the Wave of Change: Why Developing a Culture of Innovation and Agility is Essential to our Success

The pandemic has changed everything – the way we socialize, celebrate, communicate, and how we work. 

In the content and connectivity industry, the challenge was two-fold – to quickly equip a remote workforce, and in addition, ensure that people worldwide stayed connected. Proudly, the industry rose to the challenge, exhibiting agility and innovation in a time of crisis. But now that seas are starting to calm, what will organizations continue to do to ride the wave of change?

Three Ways to Turn the Great Resignation into the Great Retention

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, four million Americans quit their jobs in July 2021, and this trend continues. Management professor Anthony Klotz coined it "The Great Resignation” explaining, "How we spent our time before the pandemic may not be how we want to spend our time after.”

The Great Resignation is hitting companies in the media/telecom/technology industry especially hard, according to Ian Cook, HR strategist. In tech, resignations increased by 4.5%. Even more concerning, resignation rates are highest among mid-career employees between the ages of 30 and 45.

People are looking for a place and a forum to ask questions and get resources so that they can return to their organizations and act as intrapreneurs. Intrapreneurship Academy at The Cable Center is that place.
