Leadership for Successful Navigation through the Great Resignation 2021.

Leading through change creates opportunity, collaboration and a serious call to action. In the professional environment is buzz around the Great Resignation and Employer commitment to face today’s pandemic challenges together has created possibility, building trust, and redefining market place.

I founded the Jobs N Career Network after September 11, 2001 when the Work and our world is in so much churn. I was raised in the Midwest, where loyalty mattered, to a point. If you were being treated well and paid fairly, why quit? My parents taught us to never quit a job, unless you have something else confirmed, because it is much easier to find a job, if you already have a job.

We heard about the Great Resignation in the press, on the news, and in Global HR Recruiting Professionals Network. Was this real? Was it a thing? I had to seek evidence that the Great Resignation was not just part of the Buzz Word Soup that makes up our daily living. This is a quick report out that yes the Great Resignation is a thing, and headliner news from Price Waterhouse suggests the winners are the companies that understand the power of attraction and retaining people who want to make a difference!

Post Covid Career Motivations

During the COVID Pandemic, almost everyone experienced lifechanging loss and grief due to COVID missed socialization. They reflected on their futures and what really mattered to them going forward. Career Change Choice is the reason. The biggest leavers were in the hospitality and retail industry, but the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggest this is an across the board increase of leavers.

Employees want to feel valuable, valued, and productive. Most are seeking what they want to be happy with the right mix of work from home flexibility, growth opportunities, and fast interview decision making from interview to offer.

The Pandemic is most certainly a factor. The biggest leavers were in the hospitality and retail industry, but the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggest this is an across the board increase of employee leavers included:

The Big 4 thought leader, Price Waterhouse (PWC), made Global News by allowing 40,000 of its 50,000 member United States Workforce to work from home, anywhere within the United States.
