Today’s post comes to us from the Executive Director of The Workforce Institute, Dr. Chris Mullen, Ph.D., SHRM-SCP, SPHR.
We’ve heard a lot about “The Great Resignation” this year, which refers to millions of working professionals around the world deciding to voluntarily leave their current employers. There are a number of factors driving this mass departure — e.g., shifting priorities, changing careers, caring for children or elders — though experts agree it’s a phenomenon exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
From an employee’s viewpoint, joining The Great Resignation movement opens up a world of possibilities, from greater flexibility to better benefits. But if you’re an employer, you might be scrambling right now for ways to ensure your best and brightest people decide to keep growing their careers with you. Maybe you’re focused on attracting new talent who’ve decided to jump.
What can companies do to effectively hire and retain employees in the age of The Great Resignation? Tomorrow (October 20) at 2:00 p.m. ET, I’ll be joining Workforce Institute advisory board members Sarah Morgan, chief excellence officer at BuzzARooney, LLC, and John Frehse, senior managing director at Ankura, for a Human Resource Executive webinar titled “Beyond the Great Resignation: An Action Plan for Hiring and Retention.”
We hope you’ll join us for this timely conversation, as we examine how the business world reached this point, what leading companies are doing to weather the storm, and the steps you can take now to create an actionable plan for transforming hiring and retention.
