Do you feel like you fit in at your workplace? Research shows that one out of three new hires will quit within 90 days, 53% of people who have been with a company for half a year are still searching for a new job, and 75% of people experience anxiety before the work week begins.

They talk about the concept of fit, the trends in the world of work, and the connection between fit and belonging. They share insights for leaders on how to create a culture of fit and re-recruit their teams. Additionally, they discuss the role of fit in individual career development and offer advice for job seekers.
