The Covid-19 pandemic has spurred one of the greatest shifts in the nature of work we’ve seen in our lifetimes.
More people than ever have left the job market (or the organizations they worked for) in a short period, driven by the widespread availability and appeal of flexible remote and hybrid working arrangements. At this point, it seems fair to say this is not a temporary trend; this is the future of work — one in which employees seeking options that fit their lifestyles are steering the way companies operate rather than the inverse.
An eye-opening piece of recent research by PwC found that 65% of workers are currently seeking new positions and 88% of executives report higher turnover than usual. Consequently, strategic planning for major process changes sits atop corporate agendas for the coming year and beyond.
