The Problem With The Great Resignation

The Great Resignation, also known as The Big Quit, is an ongoing economic trend in which employees quit their jobs for higher pay and a promise of better opportunities. But has this actually been the case? 

Statistics seem to indicate otherwise. A recent study shows that a staggering 40% of candidates don't feel valued in their new role since they have left.

Another study found that 72% of the 2500 workers who participated stated their experience was very different from what they expected when changing jobs.

Yet perhaps the most concerning issue regarding The Great Resignation is its effects on the recruiting process.

Candidates are now moving through the recruiting cycle at a frenzied pace, whereas before, companies used to be more methodical about it. 

The problem is that many companies are overselling their company, their culture, and the position itself in this rush to get candidates - it's no wonder many employees feel dissatisfied in their new roles.

So, what can small business HR teams do to navigate this complex environment?

Tune in to this week’s episode of ‘While We Were Working’ to find out!

Jumpstart HR consultant Devin Fruzyna joins Sommer to discuss why many employees currently regret quitting their jobs and how small businesses can adjust their recruiting process to remain competitive and hire the best talent.

Sommer and Devin also share their thoughts on the pros and cons of assessments during the recruitment process. You'll learn when employment assessments are appropriate, their impact on talent acquisition, and how to set your hiring team up for success.
