Jason Lauritsen is a keynote speaker, author, and consultant. He is an employee engagement and workplace culture expert who will challenge you to think differently.

A former corporate Human Resources executive, Jason has dedicated his career to helping leaders build organizations that are good for both people and profits. 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.

Far too many people are suffering through bad experiences at work. I was one of them. After years of frustration, I discovered that it didn’t have to be this way. That is when I realized my calling: to make work human. Whether I’m speaking, training, writing or consulting, my goal is always the same. To help people think differently about work so they can make work better. I use stories of my life experience as an entrepreneur, executive, spouse, father, and human being to make the message relatable and entertaining. Work is a relationship, not a contract. Start treating it that way to engage your employees. My keynotes are designed to be thought-provoking and entertaining. I will leave you thinking differently and equipped to take action.

“Jason, Thanks so much for taking the time to visit BSHRM and share your knowledge with us. Both the workshop and the lunch presentation were excellent!

Loved it!” “I want more of this kind of programming. I love it! He is great!” “Wonderful presentation and relevant content. Left feeling empowered to provide more peer recognition and filled with creative ideas to take home.” “Could have spent the whole day on this topic. Really liked the concrete data provided.” Again, thanks for everything!”


Jason spoke at our Brightstar Accessories Growth Summit as our Keynote speaker. Our annual Growth Summit is an opportunity for us to host our biggest and brightest clients and vendors in Omaha for three days of networking, learning, and collaborating. It is paramount that our event include content that our clients can learn and take back for immediate impact into their organization. Jason’s presentation on hacks allowed our vendors, clients and staff to collaborate on solving problems and learning about each other’s business needs and challenges. The interactivity and the content was a brilliant addition to our most important event of the year. Attendees left energized and empowered to improve their businesses with the tools and recommendations he provided. Awesome experience!



“You were terrific and this is a great keynote! I cannot wait to get the book! Jason Lauritsen is a dynamic speaker and employee engagement expert that will grab your audience and spark them to think about engagement in a new way. Jason had our attendee’s attention from the moment he took the stage and his presentation style kept them engaged. Social media was jumping during his session tweeting the insights they were learning from Jason and wrote they loved his presentation. I highly recommend Jason for any setting where valuable insights on employee engagement linked to high performance would resonate.”
