It’s the stuff of nightmares, a looming question that we know HR leaders wish they could avoid …
What would you do if nearly half of your workforce disappeared?
A nightmare, yes, but unfortunately, this is becoming more and more of a reality for industries and businesses of all sizes. Our most recent retention research found at least 42% of employees are actively looking for a new employer or intend to in the next 12 months. 66% of HR leaders report their companies are actively hiring – so they’re looking for talent to poach.
So employers are asking themselves, if we’re to avoid this material loss to productivity, is turning back to the pre-COVID-norm really an option?
The short answer is no: COVID-19 was a turning point, whether you are prepared to call it that or not.
