Event Description:

The workplace has been radically impacted by the events of the last approximately sixteen months, with the pandemic, mental health crisis, social justice escalations, family reconnection, and other realities causing individuals to reevaluate all aspects of their lives – including, profoundly, how we work. The shifts in priorities, desire for greater autonomy, control, flexibility, meaning and fulfilment have caused employees to scrutinize their working arrangements, which has resulted in a new crisis for employers, commonly referred to as the looming resignation boom.

Many employers have underestimated the impacts of our new climate and, in particular, how debilitating they have been to workplace culture and employee experience. Failing to acknowledge these seismic shifts leaves employers vulnerable to resignation boom attrition and unable to attract the talent required to fully stabilize and recover.
