How To Navigate The Great Resignation | Why Now Is The Best Time To Build Your Career | The Worst Way To Ask For A Mentor


Hi Forbes Careers readers,

I, for one, am
sick of hearing the words "Great Resignation"—and almost as sick of attending virtual goodbye parties. But while the influx of employees quitting is a sad reality for many companies right now, it doesn't have to be. Here are some things management can easily do to keep workers from walking out the door.

Building strong, cohesive and empowering work cultures can certainly mitigate the risk of resignation. Leaders should try these six strategies to do so. It's also clear that demand for top-notch workers is outstripping supply. However, it's not impossible to weather the "Great Resignation" storm. Here are four ways you can rebuild a stellar team.



P.S. As someone who always likes to achieve "inbox zero," I'm typically quick to respond to work emails. But I recently learned that being first to respond to group messages may not make the intended impression. The next time you receive a group email and feel compelled to reply immediately, here are three steps to consider instead.
