Purpose Jobs Recognizes Ryan LaPensee as a Top Purpose-Driven CEO in 2023

Detroit, MI – Purpose Jobs, the largest community of purpose-driven professionals, today announced Ryan LaPensee to its list of best purpose-driven CEOs in 2023.

These CEOs were nominated and selected based on the following criteria: communication and transparency, strategy and vision, high EQ and empathy, high integrity, and commitment to purpose-driven leadership.

“I am honored to be included in Purpose Jobs’ list of the Best Purpose-Driven CEOs in 2023,” said Ryan LaPensee, CEO of a PanOptic. “As a CEO, I understand that I have the opportunity to make an impact not just in the company but in our field, and I’m committed to creating a workplace where people feel valued, accepted and energized to go make a difference in the world.”

More than ever are people seeking purpose-driven leadership. Coming off of the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to a seismic shift in the way people think about work, more and more people are prioritizing purpose in their work experiences.

According to Gartner, 82% of employees in 2023 say it’s important for their organization to see them as a person, not just an employee. Job seekers and current employees alike want to bring their authentic selves to work, and that includes their purpose and values.

“As a CEO, there’s a great responsibility to lead the company in one direction or another. The ones who lead with purpose find higher talent retention rates, better business outcomes, and higher satisfaction,” said Ryan Landau, founder and CEO of Purpose Jobs. “The future of work is purpose-driven, and these CEOs are amazing examples of how powerful that kind of leadership is.”
