As the Great Resignation continues, it’s incredibly important to get on top of retaining and engaging your workers this year. After all, it could mean the difference between a workforce that’s ready to tackle the day’s challenges and a widespread sense of burnout. Here are some tips you can integrate.  

As we were going through the initial slog of the COVID-19 pandemic, we had no idea that 2021 would be partially characterized by a phenomenon called the “Great Resignation.” Up to November 2021, more than 3.9 million workers on average left their jobs each month — the highest average on record. In workplaces across the globe, it was a year of shock, recovery, healing, and learning.

Today, while they’re still grappling with the changes the pandemic brought to their businesses, leaders are also trying to rapidly implement all we’ve learned over the last year. Their goal?

This means giving employees autonomy on where and how they get work done, offering hybrid or remote work environments, and embracing digital transformation, to name a few.
