The pandemic created the perfect storm for employees to consider what is really important to them. And this has led to many factors that have caused the “Great Resignation.” The availability of flexible work arrangements, poor employee supports, toxic work cultures, and a lack of connectedness, have all contributed to the mass exodus of 4.4 million Americans quitting their jobs in September 2021. Can employee recognition practices and recognition programs help solve this problem?

This webinar will share insights from recent research studies to better understand the causes for so many resignations. And we will look at how much of an impact meaningful and effective recognition has had in influencing the “Big Quit.”

You’ll come away with:

  • A better understanding of the multiple factors contributing to the Great Resignation.
  • Suggestions for dealing with the areas you can control for retaining staff.
  • Learning the level of impact that recognition can have on keeping people.
