"Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to." - Richard Branson


Engage This Corporate Employee Experience and Personal Development Consultant

2018 has been declared by Forbes as the "Year of the Employee Experience."

Millennials are now the majority in the workplace. They've been called flaky, entitled avocado toast eaters and worse. And they're staying around only ~2 years in each job, on average, even at "Best Places to Work" like Google and Facebook. 

But the time for making light of them has come and gone. They've taken over :)

As a CEO, CHRO or hiring manager concerned with finding the right -- not just the best -- talent, you must have a playbook for attracting, hiring, training, engaging, retaining and developing Millennials and Gen Zs.

If you're like the vast majority, you're still hoping the same old methods will work with the "Wary Generation." But they won't.

Because the truth is, you still have no idea what these "Millennials" really want, what makes them tick, what will get them to stick around, become leaders and give you the ROI you deserve from hiring them.

Now imagine having *the* expert who literally wrote the book on the subject ("What Millennials Really Want from Work and Life," Business Expert Press, 2019) as your go-to resource, someone both knowledgeable and approachable who *gets* Millennials and Gen Zs, plus speaks your language and can clearly articulate your employee experience and HR Transformation strategy.

Also, imagine being the benchmark company case study your rivals are using as a model because they appreciate the superior results and increased engagement from your team’s learning and development.

Here’s how I can help. I’m Yuri Kruman and my expertise is in training teams on strategies, tools, and best practices to maximize their hiring, management and leadership strategies by attracting, engaging and developing top Millennial executive talent and then giving them the room and resources to transform your brand and bottom line.

How do I know that I can help? After a career of being a technology and consulting hybrid (both as an entrepreneur, startup exec and in corporate America), I now train corporate and startup teams, providing in-depth HR, personal development and employee experience strategy presentations. [More on my expertise and experience]

HATE BUZZWORDS AND CORPORATESE? ONE OF MY BEST TRAITS IS BEING ABLE TO DELIVER CLEAR AND ACTIONABLE PRESENTATIONS ON EVEN THE MOST COMPLEX EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT CONCEPTS.

Hire me if YOU NEED a consultant TO:

  1. Teach your team a proven process and help them follow a clear roadmap and act quickly
  2. Share deep knowledge and experience in optimizing employee experience and personal development programs and trainings
  3. Save time with training that's proven and relentlessly focused on results
  4. Guarantee results and deliver clear -- and massive -- added value
  5. Give over compelling ideas that are fresh and actionable, coming from a great personal story with a uniquely different perspective
  6. Be flexible in delivering training online and in-person
  7. Remain available to continue supporting your team through coaching and periodic team Q&As

Who should receive training?

This may be different from one company to another. For most, those team members who receive training include: team leads and top executives, HR/People/Culture teams, customer success teams, BizDev and Sales teams, brand managers, marketing managers.

It's true that essentially everyone on your team contributes in some way to the planning, implementation, and success of your overall personal development and HR Transformation/employee experience plan. Since each company has its own particular needs, only you can decide which of your people are in the best position to benefit from personal development and employee experience training.

Yuri played a big part in uplifting my business from where it was initially, into where it is today. He introduced to me new strategies and ways of serving others that I didn’t think were possible at the time. He really helped us dial in on our ideal client profiles, as well as our overall presentation, branding, and PR efforts as an agency. Helping us evolve and get in front of much bigger clients. We continue to apply his lessons today. - Jon Sicherman - CEO/Founder of Creative Minds Media Group

"Yuri delivered a concise and insightful presentation on the topic "How to Get Into a Top Startup." As a group of Young Professionals, our audience was eager to learn about this idea, and Yuri came through. People were informed and engaged, emerging with fresh and helpful tips for advancing in their professional careers. I recommend Yuri for any platform, and to boot, he is a pleasure to work with.“ - R' Ahrele Loschak, Director, CYP Brooklyn
 
"Yuri has been a big find in helping us up-level Winspire. Yuri has helped us sharpen our business model and create a compelling value proposition that has made us 10x more attractive to customers and investors. Yuri was also helpful in giving multiple strategies that we were not aware of, to build our Press and Partnerships. His advice has helped us gain visibility in the media and with investors. 

Personally, the biggest ‘wow’ for me has been the way Yuri was able to ask very compelling questions and trigger a change in my mindset – about how I saw my company in my own eyes and my customer’s eyes. It has created an immense confidence in me as a CEO and I can see that confidence translating into results for my company. I highly recommend execs who are stuck in their head to work with Yuri and unlock a potential that will save time and create real results. Thanks for the transformation you've created in my company and in myself Yuri!" - Vin Jeyaraj, Founder & CEO of Winspire

I admire Yuri's great optimism and support as well as the positive energy that he transmits. What I have learned with Yuri has allowed us as a company to focus and understand many things about the New York market, what we didn't know beforehand. His training and insights have allowed me to move much faster than we expected in this three-month process." - Paulina Barría Hamamé, CEO of Bikelite
