The Great Resignation shows no signs of slowing down in 2022 – if anything, it’s ramping up. In November of 2021, 3% of workers voluntarily quit their jobs, a number that will likely continue to rise this year. In a recent Harvard Business Review survey, 57% of respondents said they would consider taking a new job in the coming year – and it won’t be hard for employees to find new opportunities either. As of February of 2022, there are two unemployed workers for every three job openings.

To mitigate the impact of the Great Resignation – and avoid being short-staffed – you need to take a cold, hard look at your current company. Are you providing employees with reasons to stay? Or are you adhering to dated practices that will make employees start wondering whether their talents would be put to better use elsewhere?
While times may be stressful for HR leaders, try to see the positive here. You have a unique opportunity to revamp your company’s structure and give employees on all levels a better experience.
