Video: Employee Engagement Goes To The Movies – Episode 2: The Intern

DecisionWise consultants Spencer Taylor and Kenna Bryan examine the 2015 film “The Intern,” starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. In this movie, Ben (played by De Niro) is a 70-year old retired widower who takes an intern position at an online fashion site run by Jules (played by Hathaway).

One of the power principles we took from the film is the concept of “the power of one to make a difference.” Ben is a very useful, pro-active employee who is very supportive of his workaholic boss, Jules and helps her to overcome her struggles and re-ignite her passion for the business. We found several lessons from the movie that help us understand how to provide a positive employee experience.
