The “Great Resignation” first hit the news back in May 2021, and describes the trend that impacted a number of large, industrialized companies where record numbers of employees were resigning from their full-time jobs. As the world recovers in the post-COVID world and redefines “normal”, astounding numbers of people are now finding career opportunities in places that they’d never considered previously. As knowledge workers like us rethink job satisfaction, personal values, and the future of our careers, a whole new set of challenges arise.

Topics will include:

  • As a knowledge worker, what new and different benefits, compensation, and flexibility should I ask for at review time?
  • As an employer, how do I balance an ever growing list of challenges in how I support my on-site, remote, and hybrid employees?
  • As a hiring manager or recruiter, how do I ask the right questions to set everyone up for success, and reduce the chances of attrition?
