MEANINGFUL WORK is the Answer 


Most employees have work at home fatigue and it is impacting performance.


Findings from 5th Talent’s November 2020 Contact Center Industry Work at Home Update.

We Discovered the Solution to the Turnover, Engagement, and Performance Problems




Customer Satisfaction


Cost to Serve


5th Talent is the only company that helps you achieve a meaningful work environment for your people.

When companies use our methodology, they enable employees to find meaning in serving others.  The result is lower turnover and higher customer satisfaction. 


Working in the service industry is difficult, tiring, emotionally draining.  But that's not what employees say who work in companies that implement the 5th Talent method.


The most important thing we have noticed is that the Facebook sentiment of our employees is changing for the positive.


I have been through a lot of courses for management, but this course is the first one that addresses what I need as a human in charge of other humans.


Thanks for messing with my head. Once you see GRIND, you can't un-see it! I am seeing it everywhere now, and I want to fix all of it.

People Want Meaningful Work

Meaningful work has never been more important than it is today, especially for Generation Z.  Studies show that 70% of today’s employees want more meaning in their work.*

Serving People is Meaningful

The defining characteristic of meaningfulness is that a person’s work makes a difference in someone’s life. 

Grind Destroys Meaningful Work

Promoting meaningful work is not enough, because there are opposing forces that we call “grind” which is destroying the meaning your people find in their job.  Grind is the leading cause of frustration, stress, and anxiety arising from the work they do. 

Grind [grīnd] \ noun: 
Wear and tear caused by pressure to give what customers want, while being restrained in the ability to do so

Why Do People Quit?

People tend to leave their jobs when the level of frustration, stress, and anxiety arising from their work outweighs the level of personal meaningfulness they receive from it. Our studies show that together meaningful work and grind can predict over 65% of a person’s intent to quit.  

The 5 Talents are the foundation that enables your people to experience more meaningful moments in their work.
