· Attract, hire, and retain prospective employees and
freelancers by emphasizing the importance of their
growth, impact and peer relationships. This is particularly important in the mortgage industry, which is
based on relationships.
· Redefine the organizational chart and office space, so
it reflects purpose driven conversations, instead of
just departmental conversations.
To be sure, this isn’t the only solution to a complex
situation. Women face many issues in the workplace that
are subject to her gender. Yet it’s clear that focusing on
gender alone isn’t working, and hasn’t been working for
over a decade.
Let’s start a new conversation about women in the
workplace, one focusing on both gender and purpose.

A PURPOSE-DRIVEN ORGANIZATION
MAY HELP RETAIN FEMALE TALENT
He explains the purpose economy as, “… an econo-
my where value lies in establishing purpose for employees
and customers–through serving needs greater than their
own, enabling personal growth and building community.”
While creating a purpose-driven organization may
sound idyllic, it is actually very attainable. But how do you
do focus on purpose in the mortgage industry?
HOW DO YOU CREATE PURPOSE-DRIVEN ORGANIZATIONS?
Hurst invited forty-nine thought leaders and myself
to a Purpose at Work Summit to share best practices for
creating purpose driven organizations. Here are some of
the ideas that came from the group:
· Create a “purpose review” in addition to a perfor-
mance review, to help the organization know if the
employee still feels purposeful at work.
· Find ways to increase organizational trust and transparency, where mistakes are applauded and difficult
conversations are rewarded.
