The impact of the ‘Great Reshuffle’
The annual Cegos Barometer survey showcases the trends influencing recruitment and personal and professional development. In the latest survey, 78% of respondents said they would seriously consider moving from their current company if a new role has greater meaning and purpose.
Time for companies to act
This response has significant implications for companies, demanding a culture that values an employee’s contribution and allows them to make some impact on the wider world. It is also important to align company values with modern thinking, especially around issues such as diversity & inclusion, climate and social equity.
War for talent
The ‘great reshuffle’ entails, in most cases, a change of company, and therefore triggers a war for talent. As we’re seeing today, many companies are upskilling their HR teams, recruitment and resourcing teams, to attract the brightest and best.
Also, the ‘great reshuffle’ calls for organisations to invest in offering meaningful positions, good compensation packages and full support of the L&D function as an ally.
About a third of respondents said their company was already implementing training to deal with a potential brain drain, while 84% said they are actively considering it.
Whatever the case, it is important for business leaders of all generations to adjust their mindset and understand what is motivating employees in the modern world. Clearly, it is not just salary and benefits.
