This pandemic has impacted Australian businesses, and the individuals in them, in different ways. Now, as we transition into the next phase of business, many workers are becoming part of The Great Resignation.

The Great Resignation is a phenomenon where 3 in 5 Aussies are predicted to leave their senior-level roles before March 2022.

We may have shifted the workplace to a hybrid, working from home location, however, we haven’t changed the over-arching way we work.

And this lack of definition between the workday, family time and personal time is leading to exhaustion and team members reassessing what’s really important to them in life.

How is this impacting Australian businesses and what can you do about it?

  1. Start the conversation now – opening the lines of communication early is imperative to ensure your team members engage with you about their feelings and include you in their decision-making process.

  2. Show appreciation – leave no stone unturned and think outside the box to find new ways to show your appreciation for your team members and their actions. Studies on The Great Resignation in the USA are showing that one of the biggest reasons people are resigning is over the lack of acknowledgement for what they describe to be the “thankless tasks”.

  3. Flexibility and Alignment – introduce a new level of flexibility with defined work-life options available for your team members to choose between. This allows for a greater level of control for individuals to create a work-life balance that works for them and is in alignment with their personal values.

And remember if your business does experience the impact of The Great Resignation, our team will be happy to support you. Reach out to us on 03 9500 2797 or connect@brookrecruitment.com.au.
