The Covid aftershock? A tsunami of resignations

With the anticipated ending of Covid-19 restrictions towards the end of June, many leaders, businesses, and teams are asking themselves what they want the ‘new normal’ to look like. As restrictions on working in offices and commuting are lifted, the only thing it seems everyone can agree on is that things will look very different indeed. While many of our clients are asking questions about hybrid working styles, flexitime, and how to support their staff adjusting to new routines having worked remotely for 14 months, others are asking a much simpler and more significant question – do their staff still want to work there at all?

The pandemic has been a time of uncertainty and upheaval. Many people, regardless of their level of job satisfaction, may have felt content to coast, feeling it was not the right time to make a move. This, in conjunction with those individuals finally feeling able to pause and take stock of what they have learned about themselves, their priorities, and what they may want in the future, is likely to lead to a ‘tidal wave’ of resignations as we move back to normality.
