It’s not about the $$$

Companies and organizations are struggling to recruit and retain employees. Everyone believed increasing pay was the answer to the problem. The “Great Resignation” and Baby Boomers leaving the workforce left a huge void. Individuals are taking advantage of sliding into higher paying jobs leaving smaller mom and pop businesses struggling along with service industry jobs. People are looking for opportunities where they feel welcome and respected. People can choose where they work and if they don’t like the environment, another opportunity is waiting in the wings. Having more choices mean that employers now have to tackle issues of social justice, quality of life and be more inclusive. Great time to “flex” on getting your needs for you and your family met.
