The pandemic has clearly thrown the global economy for a loop. While some have been pushed out of work by layoffs, others are quitting of their own volition – so many of them, the trend has been dubbed the “Great Resignation.”

- Not feeling connected to the company’s purpose
- Not having strong relationships at work
