Working from home has allowed people to rethink what work means to them and what it means to be truly valued. While some turnover is healthy, many organizations have been hit with a massive wave of resignations - coined “The Great Resignation.”
Hiding in the shadow of the Great Resignation is a Great Transformation that will be hitting organizations as a combination of turnover and associated hiring that reshuffles the workforce. The disruption of work processes, cultures, and relationships will foster opportunities for both growth and conflict.
How can organizations maximize the growth and minimize the conflict following in the wake of The Great Resignation?
In this session, we will discuss:
- How the large scale turnover is likely to disrupt organizations long after they have refilled those roles
- What leaders and managers should focus on to make the disruptions as positive as possible
