  • Summary

    According to an article written by the Harvard Business Review in 2021, the greatest increase in resignation rates were employees between the ages of 30-45 years old; an article published by a LinkedIn editor suggested that 78% of Millennials polled during the summer of 2021 were interested in changing jobs and recalibrating their priorities due to the pandemic, trading prestigious jobs, startup perks, and even workplace passion for more flexibility and time off the clock.

    To assist professionals who are being impacted by the Great Resignation or have colleagues that are working toward developing strategic action plans to alleviate the negative impact of this workplace trend, Dr. Joshua Fredenburg will be sharing four leadership strategies from his newest leadership book on retention to help organizations address this challenge.
