Introduction to The Great Realization
This year, it was my pleasure and privilege to share insight on Why People Stay. Thoughts and contemplations regarding the last two years and how the COVID ripple has had influence on our business landscape.
The Great Resignation, a term coined in May 2021, describes the record number of people leaving their jobs since the beginning of the pandemic. As a leadership specialist, I spent time and energy researching how both employees and employers responded. This movement, also known as the Big Quit and the Great Reshuffle, showed people were leaving jobs. At the same time, organizations of all sizes and scale came into a Great Reflection about what to do.
As we approach a third year after, the dust has settled. I believe we have come into what I refer to as the Great Realization. A time when we are beginning to evaluate “the job”. Whether you are looking at your current and past job, or you are seeking to provide opportunities for new team members, this is a time to discuss what we learned and what we need to do as we move forward.
This new series will explore the stages of the employee life cycle from finding the job to how the job can expand possibilities to how company culture plays a part all along the way.
