The Great Resignation of 2021
Have you heard of the term the ‘Great Resignation’?
It’s not just a buzz term, this mass movement of employees is happening around the world right now – and it looks like it has already begun in New Zealand.
We wanted to share this highly topical update as we see more and more of our clients struggle to meet customer demand for their goods and services simply due to the fact that they don’t have enough people to support the current business, let alone meet any growth opportunities. With unemployment reaching record lows and no relief in sight from potential overseas recruitment, it seems every business is looking for more staff.
So what is fuelling this exodus? The team at Employment Hero surveyed 1,000 workers from around New Zealand between the 30th of August and the 3rd of September to find out.
Their essential findings included:
- Workers intentions for switching roles
- Groups at high risk of turnover
- The main reasons for job-seeking
- Strategies for retention
- How to win over job-seekers
- How to boost your EVP for recruitment opportunities
- much more
Actions over the next 6 months could have a huge impact on your business’ retention and recruitment.
