How to handle The Great Resignation

There has been a large rise in people choosing to leave their current workplace throughout the Covdi19 Pandemic, commonly being labelled as “The Great Resignation”.

How can you retain and attract the best talent during a time of mass resignation

Although there have been many changes to working practices, particularly around hybrid working, the pandemic has provided most people with a lot more thinking and self-reflection time than they had during pre-covid life. This has led people to think about what they really want out of both their personal and career life. Many people are questioning whether the company culture they currently work within is something they can continue to work in, whether they are paid fairly, respected, and valued, and whether they feel fulfilled or unfulfilled in their current role as well as the flexibility offered in their current workplace.

According to research from The Guardian, it is believed that almost a quarter of the UK workforce are planning to change employers over the coming months.

We are seeing a large positive effect on recruitment and retention within businesses that offer flexible working practices for their workforce.

There are certainly some instances where remote working can be a ‘win-win’ for the employer and employee including the ability to hire great talent where people need some flexibility, which can also enable employees to have a better work-life balance. However, it is important that the balance is right for both the company and their workforce. There are still many benefits for businesses and their workforces when it comes to working in an office environment such as social interaction and collaboration, building team and company culture as well as opportunities to learn by watching and listening in on colleagues in the office.
