06.15.22 -- The Great Resignation May Not Be Over Yet

 
     
 
     
 

FROM THE EDITOR

 

What? The great resignation may not be over yet?

 

I recently read several studies stating that employers will continue to face higher than average employee resignations this year. One found that more than 50% of marketers are considering leaving their current jobs in the next twelve months. Another characterized our post-pandemic recovery as fragile.

 

Fasten your seatbelts, we may be in for a rough ride for the remainder of the year. However, there are businesses that flourish during times like these, and they have defining characteristics that we can all adopt if we choose.

 

Our feature article highlights what we can do now and includes some best practices from the human resources experts at Mercer. 

 

We also have some great articles about successful businesses that embrace continuous improvement, do more with less, and approach every challenge with an underdog attitude.

 

Businesses that have higher than average employee resignations will experience disruptions only if they are unprepared. And there are things we can all do to prepare for, and possibly preempt, the turbulence.

We love underdogs. Remember when the US hockey team earned a gold medal with an astonishing defeat of the Soviet Union in the 1980 Olympics? Or how about the perennial underdogs, AFC Richmond, coached by our favorite uber-optimist Ted Lasso.
