Can you have it all? Juggling the demands of work and your personal life can be a challenge.

Wednesday, Dec. 6

Watch of the top 10 most famous TED talks from award-winning author Dan Pink on the science behind motivation. After the talk, participants will engage in a facilitated discussion about techniques that drive motivation and engagement in ourselves and others.

Thursday, Dec. 7

9 a.m. – 1 p.m. | Wardlaw, Gordy
Refresh your connection to Georgia Tech’s vision, mission, culture, and traditions with the Seasoned Employee Experience. Have you heard about new employees enjoying a day of learning and engaging with Tech’s history and vision? Once a year, we open this onboarding experience to seasoned employees who didn’t have the opportunity to attend the New Welcome Experience: the Welcome to Tech Session. The session features lunch, a special campus tour, and much more!

Friday, Dec. 8

9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. | Student Center
Do you ever feel disconnected from the heart of Georgia Tech—the students? Listen as Sarah Perkins, Georgia Tech’s Student Engagement assistant director, and Quinn Foster, Student Organizations coordinator, share opportunities for faculty and staff to engage and work with students outside the classroom. After the presentation, we will assemble “Encouragement Packs” and hand them out to students in the Student Center as they prepare to take final exams.
