In the past year, a shocking number of Americans have quit their jobs in what is known as the Great Resignation. And while you may think this trend only affects low-wage jobs, the opposite is true. According to the research firm, Gartner, over 70% of IT workers are considering changing jobs this year. Companies are coming to realize that the people they employ are valuable assets. With IT workers scarce, companies are grappling with a lack of personnel, trying to figure out how to find qualified workers and how to hold on to them.
This is no easy task. The pandemic changed many things including how employees view work. Today’s workers are different from the workers of two years ago. When the rate of Covid infection was high and people worked remotely, they got used to not having to commute and having more flexible hours. A recent article in Harvard Business Review states that during the pandemic many people began questioning the meaning and purpose of their work, and some are taking the time to evaluate and reinvent themselves. In addition, some employees still may want to continue working remotely due to fear of Covid.
