Helping Them Stick in the Time of, "I Quit!"

About the Course

In the wake of the unprecedented jobs crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, a new trend has emerged in the U.S. labor market. A record number of Americans, many with years of tenure on their jobs are saying, "I Quit!" In 2021, 1 in 4 Americans voluntarily left their jobs and as a new national survey shows 55% of working Americans are planning to look for a new job, that number is expected to grow. Known as the Great Resignation, this trend is hitting some industries particularly hard and has significantly disrupted business for companies --- big and small --- across the U.S.


Inside of these trends, another story has emerged. Some companies not only held on to their people, they grew their reputations for being great places to work and simultaneously grew their bottom lines. As leaders, we can use the lessons learned from both impacted and inspiring firms to help our organizations retain our best employees.


Helping Them Stick in the Time of "I Quit!" will help workshop participants to be able to identify and sure-up any potential challenges in their companies that could lead to a mass exodus. Participants will also be empowered with tools they can use in the moment to prevent a knee-jerk "I Quit!" reaction themselves --- as well as being able to share these tools with their teams. At the end of the workshop, participants will be empowered to create a workplace where people don't just survive, they thrive!
