The Great Opportunity: How the Great Resignation is Shaping the Future of Work


In early 2020, many organizations had to rapidly adjust their business practices to contend with the COVID-19 pandemic, and it became clear early on that there would never be a true “return to normal”. The ripple effects of that transformation have continued to shake up our world of work. Driven by factors like burnout, financial concerns, safety, increased desire for job security and stability or a greater need for work-life balance, many employees have been taking their careers into their own hands by searching for new roles in hyper-flexible, people-first workplaces.

As a result, a phenomenon known as the Great Resignation is sweeping the nation. Now knowing they have the freedom to choose when, where and how work gets done, employees are not going back. As job seekers leverage this moment to find both success and personal satisfaction, companies must evolve or risk becoming stagnant. 

In a Kforce survey, 41% of remote workers said they would likely consider resigning from their current role and look for a new job if their employer mandate on-site work

However, candidates must also continue to evolve their skills and adapt to emerging technology and workplace trends in order to stay competitive in today's talent landscape. Both employees and organizations alike can seize this opportunity and transform our working world into one that works best for all.
