From Work-Life-Balance to Work-Life-Freedom
Whether it is climate change, the covid-19 pandemic or Russia's invasion of Ukraine, humanity today is facing a set of crises whose main point is the contrast between our different values. This conflict of values is currently also the main challenge for companies in attracting, retaining and developing the best talents.
According to the World Economic Forum, 41% of employees across the world are thinking in the next 6-9 months to quit their job without another offer. Most of them are re-thinking where, how and why we work? The subsequent manifest is the “Great Resignation” and the boom of start-ups in America, Europe and in emerging countries.
The good news is that the root causes of the “Great Resignation” have been identified:
Talents are inspired by the new benefits of remote and hybrid working that they have discovered.
Generation Z and Millennials find remote work attractive because of the flexible working hours it offers and are willing to lose up to 15% of their current income to get this flexibility.
Others have simply realized, in the face of pressures, illness and death, that they want more from life.
Moreover, the current war in Ukraine questions the fragility of our lives and also call for action based on our fundamental values.
