The Loss of Attraction: Why Employees Disengage
The pandemic has caused many notable changes, but arguably one of the most significant – especially in the job market – is The Great Resignation. This emerging workforce trend has disrupted the labor market and put employees back in the driver’s seat. Even though we have turned the page to a new year, The Great Resignation is still going strong in 2022. In fact, it is predicted that 23% of employed Americans plan to quit their jobs in 2022. When mass resignations are occurring across all industries, how can organizations equip themselves and become employers of choice?
How to combat employee disengagement
In this evolving job market, it is critical for organizations to revisit their current practices and adapt in order to retain and attract talent. To achieve this, organizations must give their employees what they want and tailor perks and benefits to their specific needs.
