The Great Resignation and the Future of Work


The Great Resignation is an ongoing economic trend, primarily in the United States, in which employees have voluntarily resigned from their jobs en masse. Possible causes include wage stagnation amid rising cost of living, long-lasting job dissatisfaction, safety concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic and overall uncertainty during a period of unprecedented change. Some economists have described the Great Resignation as akin to a general strike.

Our guest, Dr. Anthony Klotz, an associate professor of management at the Mays Business School at Texas A&M University, will address questions such as: What is the Great Resignation and what are its causes? Is it measurable? Is there a Great Rehire approaching? And what can leaders do today to prepare for the future of work?
