Monthly Highlights, August 2022
Much has changed in the business world since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but one trend has persisted: people keep quitting their jobs. Of workers McKinsey recently surveyed, 40 percent say they’re thinking about leaving their positions in the next three to six months—but companies are still relying on traditional levers to attract and retain talent. This month, our featured stories look at the five crucial employee personas that companies must understand to solve the attrition and attraction problem for the longer term, as well as the value of internal mobility among workers. Other highlights in this month’s issue include the following topics:
  • the strategic implications of inflation
  • how US companies can survive a downturn
  • how to support individuals who want to help solve society’s most complex challenges
  • when it comes to office space, what workers want, what employers need, and how workplaces will need to change
