A resignation boom may be on the horizon. Here’s what employers can do to prepare, and how to bounce back if you’ve already been affected.

If you’re on LinkedIn, chances are you’ve heard of the term ‘The Great Resignation’. This term refers to the increase in resignations that employers are expecting as the Covid-19 pandemic slows down. 

According to Anthony Klotz, an associate professor of management at Texas A&M, during an interview with Bloomberg, “When there’s uncertainty, people tend to stay put, so there are pent-up resignations that didn’t happen over the past year. The numbers are multiplied, he says, by the many pandemic-related epiphanies—about family time, remote work, commuting, passion projects, life, and death, and what it all means—that can make people turn their back on the 9-to-5 office grind.”

As an employer, what can you do to avoid ‘The Great Resignation’?

Remote Work Needs to Be An Option
Make Flexibility A Priority
Learning Opportunities Will Retain Talent
  • Employee Learning and Development may be low on your list of priorities with budgets being cut due to the pandemic – but it shouldn’t be. A sure-fire way to increase engagement? Empower your employees with opportunities to upskill. A focus on L&D as a pillar of your Employer Brand can do wonders in attracting and retaining talent. 
  • Now that in-person education is limited, consider an online Learning Management System (LMS). Scout Talent’s LMS, :Learning, gives you access to an intuitive platform to manage employee learning, as well as access to over 18,000 courses.
