The wave of attrition is coming… are you ready?

Leaders need to start asking questions and considering a future that better takes into account the needs of their workforce - particularly as studies show burnout and stress are at an all-time high.

Are you prepared to lose 40% of your workforce? A recent headline by Jan Tegze asked this question and it makes us wonder. “Open to work” notifications are popping up on social media but that’s certainly just the tip of the iceberg. Multiple surveys out right now show a fairly significant percentage of people are looking to change jobs as the economy improves.

People have had a taste of a new way of working and if they don’t feel supported in keeping some – if not all – of the changes they’ve embraced in the past 18 months, they’re making it clear that they’ll find a place that does support their needs. The pandemic may have forced companies to offer remote work and/or hybrid work but the key will be how those companies choose to respond now.

We’re looking forward to more research on this topic. And we have our eyes on this current survey by The Conference Board on how recruiting, onboarding & talent mobility have been transformed since the onset of the global pandemic. Take five minutes to participate.
