Employers are in the midst of a Great Resignation with no clear end in sight. In 2021, 47 million people voluntarily quit their jobs; that number is expected to balloon even higher, as 23% of workers are actively seeking new roles in 2022.

For weary HR leaders and business managers, who have already had to guide their teams through the relentless challenges of the pandemic, retaining employees and rebuilding their workforce is becoming yet another insurmountable challenge.

Where should employers start? By listening to the employees who are leaving, offering support to those who stay, and following COVID-borne trends - like remote work - that have become a permanent part of work culture.

From higher salaries and better benefits, to opportunities to grow within their careers, employees are clear about what they want out of work. The most successful employers will respond - and then react, with more robust benefits and a supportive work culture that cultivates learning, mental health support, workplace flexibility and the values employees hold in high regard.

This study explores how the war for talent is playing out across these industries and what people leaders and HR professionals are doing to keep their businesses moving forward.
