The Great Resignation has left many employers scratching their heads, wondering how to retain the valuable staff they have and how they can attract new talent for the future.Technology
Hiring managers face a remarkably competitive market, and although remote work, flex-time, and workplace perks may tip the scales for some would-be employees, nothing is quite as impactful as providing your team with meaningful and engaging work.
That’s much easier said than done, of course. Someone still needs to see that things get done around the office; we can’t simply dispense with the most unpleasant tasks and processes, expecting that the business will continue to operate normally, right?
No, not completely. But, to some extent, we can replace certain parts of those processes. In doing so, we can often deliver better, faster, and more accurate results. Perhaps just as importantly, we can elevate the day-to-day work performed by our most valued employees at the same time.
One very notable side effect of the COVID-19 pandemic has been a significant increase in automation. Now, as the Great Resignation marches on, we are seeing that trend shift into high gear.
