The Great Resignation

For the last 20 months, we have all had our lives turned upside down. For many, we have lost connection to our extended families, friends, colleagues, workplace and our local haunts.

We have done things, that we did not think we would ever have to do.

Though, out of the chaos, many great things are emerging.

Well, great for some, not so ideal for others!

Today I’m specifically referring to the Great Resignation.

It’s a monumental occasion, mainly because, most of us have no idea how to cope with loss.

This is a trend, where millions of people, from frontline workers to senior executives, are voluntarily resigning from their jobs. According to recent research by Microsoft, more than 40 per cent of the global workforce are considering leaving their employers this year.

What impact would 40 per cent of your employees leaving have on your business?

It is a question that all companies need to be asking.

Mainly because the majority (close to 100%) of all employees have started asking questions along these lines:

  • Why should I work for you?
  • What purpose does this organisation serve?
  • Why can’t I choose how and when I work?
  • Why can’t work fit in with my life rather than the other way around?
  • What does success even look like for me now?

As a former CFO of a publicly listed company, I know how devastating the impact can be from The Great Resignation ~ for both employers and employees.
