Last year, 4.3 million people quit their jobs every month from April through December – the highest number since the feds began keeping track. That kind of turnover has a profound effect on employers. How can you assess whether your organization is susceptible to the Great Resignation and what can you do to mitigate it? Phased retirements for older workers? Stay bonuses? More attuned communication?

Carol Coultas, business projects editor, and panelists Genevieve Fullilove, practice director of permanent placement services for Robert Half Finance & Accounting, and Julie Alig, PhD, founder and CEO of JLA Analytics discuss strategies and offer resources to help business managers keep their employees.
