Our next installment in our blog series - "Igniting Insights: Interviews on Profession & Purpose.” Our journeys are filled with diverse and inspiring travelers from around the country. In this series, we sit down with entrepreneurs, experts and creatives who have joined our journeys and get insider insights. In this installment, Sonya Jackson chats about leadership and creativity in both corporate America and beyond.
Ignite’s value proposition to our corporate partners is increased employee engagement, productivity and retention. We’ve orchestrated powerful journeys for 10 years, designed to connect, inspire and transform, while helping companies build a thriving and diverse culture. Our experiences cultivate emotionally intelligent leaders capable of driving critical business outcomes, and a nontraditional approach is core to our success.
Employees are a company’s greatest asset. Our people are critical to the success of our businesses. Forbes named 2018 the year of the employee experience, highlighting the importance of employee engagement, and yet effective strategies and solutions to this challenge can be rare and elusive.

In the 25+ years I spent working in HR for both fortune 500 companies and small fast growing startups, we developed countless initiatives to engage and inspire our employees. Each time, however, we were unable to gain the momentum we’d hoped for. That’s why, when I heard of a company called Ignite that claimed to engage and inspire employees through international immersion trips, I was skeptical. Could these “purposeful journeys” (as they call them) really be the answer to the purpose gap that exists in the workplace?
