Dr. Merrylue Martin
Dr. Merrylue Martin is President and CEO of the Job Joy Group whose mission is to help large and small organizations exceed business metrics by making their employees feel uniquely respected, appreciated, fulfilled, and engaged. She is a celebrated leadership strategist, coach, and best-selling author of, ‘The Big Quit Survival Guide- Tools and Tactics to Attract the Best, Retain Top-Performers, and Nail the Talent War.’ As a Fortune 50 senior executive, management consultant, and business owner, Merrylue has comprehensive experience in creating and delivering real-world strategies that get results.
Dr. Martin is an honored graduate of the Women’s Leadership program at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Her doctorate in organizational leadership and published dissertation from Pepperdine University uncovered the research that resulted in business and leadership practices that directly drive an employee’s decision to stay or leave an organization.
She has leveraged that work along with her learning and development background to put valuable information into practical ideas and tools that all people leaders can immediately begin implementing. Her primary message to all leaders and the organizations that support them is that people will always be people, first, and employees second.
When not working with people leaders, Merrylue enjoys interior design, dreaming up concoctions in her art studio, and writing puppet scripts for the preschool crowd, who remain her toughest critics to date.
