Willis Towers Watson's HR Summit 2021 - Making an Impact

Transforming the "great resignation" into the "great hire"

In the midst of what many are calling the “great resignation,” future-seeking leaders have retooled their organisations to adopt strategies that involve both offense and defense when it comes to talent, and creating the place people want to be. They know the headlines miss the fact that far more people have been hired in 2021 than quit, and that the "great resignation" is to some extent a misnomer: the vast majority of those who quit one job have simultaneously shifted to a different, more attractive job, thus also prompting the “great hire.”

The same holds true globally. In the U.K., a survey predicted the majority of employers planned to hire during the early months of 2021. It also reported the number of firms planning to make redundancies dropped from previous periods. Talent shortages are expected in countries across Europe, Asia and Australia. In short, the data suggest that companies can do more to attract workers as well as retain them. In this environment, leaders strive to be “net talent gainers,” hiring more employees than they lose and focusing on why people join and stay as well as why they leave.

In this session, we will explore the key drivers that employers need to consider in order to drive success and set their organisations apart from the crowd.

Further information about this session, including the speaker line-up, will be made available soon.
