The rise of the pandemic over the last few years has allowed everyone to reconsider their priorities and re-evaluate certain aspects of lifestyle. This includes their occupation and employer.
This is why 2021 saw an alarming increase in resignation rates all over the world.
Even before COVID-19 hit, remote work was a rising trend and now, flexibility at work is almost a non-negotiable among employees.
As we begin 2022, this looming threat of the Great Resignation is still upon us. So, how can we protect our organisations from people leaving?
How can you keep up with your employees?
First things first, what is this ‘Great Resignation’?
Last year, nearly 35 million workers quit their jobs in the United States. The phenomenon was dubbed as the ‘Great Resignation’.
Adobe’s 2021 survey among 5,500 workers from countries including Australia found now that 56% of Gen Z workers consider changing jobs this year. A similar survey by Microsoft revealed that 41% of the global workforce consider leaving their current employers.
The Great Resignation has taken the global stage and understanding how this can affect your employees is more crucial than ever.
