As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, companies are eager to define and transition to a post-pandemic normal. Yet, with new hybrid work models, increasing employee attrition across industries, and continued uncertainty about the lasting impacts of the pandemic period on the employment relationship, companies are facing a host of talent challenges.  This CAHRS series of working groups is aimed at helping our partner companies think through critical talent-related challenges and opportunities associated with the post-pandemic transition.  Ideal attendees to these sessions are individuals responsible for leading different talent initiatives and programs within their organization.

In this second working group of the series, Professor John Hausknecht will lead a discussion aimed at exploring some of the current challenges and opportunities associated with rising worker mobility. As companies work through post-pandemic planning, many are witnessing a steady rise in employee turnover. Indeed, data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that 2021 turnover rates are at all-time highs since data collection began in 2000. In what has been called the “turnover tsunami” and “the great resignation,” workers are leaving in droves while employers are challenged to keep pace.
Some of the questions that will guide our discussion will include:

•    What turnover trends have you noticed within your organization and what impact is turnover having on productivity, engagement, or other outcomes?

•    What are the major contributing factors to increased worker mobility? How do turnover dynamics vary across key talent groups, region, industry, etc.?

•    What strategies/practices are you adopting to manage increasing worker mobility? Of these solutions, what has been more/less effective?

About our CAHRS Series of Working Groups

The CAHRS Series of working groups are designed to examine a particular theme or topic from a number of different perspectives. The other sessions included in the “Talent Management during the Post-Pandemic Transition” working group series are listed below and can be found in the events section of the CAHRS website. 

•    Session 1: Improving the Candidate Experience (September 9th, 1:00-2:30pm ET)
•    Session 3: Evolving Learning and Development (October 5th, 1:00-2:30pm ET)
•    Session 4: Building and Maintaining Employee Engagement (October 21st, 12:00-1:30pm ET)

Our virtual working groups are kept small (15-25 participants) to allow for rich discussion and best practice sharing.  Given the limited size of each session, we ask that you only register for a session if you will be able to attend for the duration.  Prior to the session, attendees should give some thought to the questions included in the description, so they are prepared to share with the group.  We also strongly prefer that participants be on camera during the session to allow for more engaging interaction.  If for some reason after you sign up for the working group, something comes up last minute (especially while many of us are working from home), it would be great to get even a last minute e-mail advising us that you cannot attend as we sometimes have a waiting list.
