Jason is  on a crusade to help leaders and employees create a more fulfilling work experience.  His keynotes and training programs are dedicated to this goal. Whether talking about employee engagement, relationships or leadership, Jason’s objective is always the same — to educate, entertain and inspire people to take action.


“As my career unfolded, it became clear to me that the experience of “work” wasn’t a good one for far too many people. And so it has become my calling to make work better. I believe that work can and should be a rewarding and fulfilling experience (It happens, I’ve seen it). I believe that people want to do great work. I also believe that leaders want their people to be successful. The challenge seems to be that we are stuck in outdated mindsets and beliefs about “work” that get in our way. My mission is to fix that. I have dedicated my career to helping leaders build organizations that are good for both people and profits–first as an entrepreneur, then a corporate HR executive, then as a consultant,researcher, and speaker. My passion for this work has fueled my success as a keynote speaker. I am genetically hardwired both to perform in front of people and to make a difference.”

Jason has been described as “a corporate executive gone rogue.” For nearly a decade, he spent his days as a corporate Human Resources executive where he developed a reputation for driving business results through talent. Most recently, he led the research team for Quantum Workplace’s Best Places to Work program where he has studied the employee experience at thousands of companies to understand what the best workplaces in the world do differently than the rest. Classically impatient, curious, and ambitious, Jason’s early career was a rapid progression of sales and management roles including launching, leading, and ultimately selling a small business in his mid-twenties. He’s a leader, sales guy, entrepreneur, and corporate executive — all rolled up into one.

Jason is the co-author with Joe Gerstandt of the book, Social Gravity: Harnessing the Natural Laws of Relationships and a frequently published writer and blogger on employee engagement, culture and leadership. Jason Lauritsen is a keynote speaker and employee engagement expert. His passionate, engaging and thought-provoking style will challenge you to think differently.
