In 2020, a pandemic occurred that continues to affect the world to this day. In 2021, a phenomenon followed. It is known as “The Great Resignation.”
Over four million employees quit their jobs.
The reasons vary; but, to a large degree, they reflect the fear and burnout from the pandemic, and they represent a journey to values-based work. This is work that allows for time and location flexibility, shifting family dynamics, and a change from the formerly frenetic pace of business.
This presents a unique challenge for leaders in the workplace, with continued volatility expected.
How do you as a leader engage and retain the talent needed to run your organization?
While many companies offer added pay and sign-on bonuses, even this is not enough to bring the four million employees back.
Take some time to listen to this John Maxwell Corporate Solutions podcast for a frank discussion on the topic and some ideas for how you as a leader can guide your company through the waters of The Great Resignation.
