As if dealing with a global pandemic, major supply chain disruptions, emergency orders closing all but nonessential workplaces, transforming businesses to remote work, and addressing the medical and mental health needs of employees were not enough challenges for employers, midyear 2021 brought the “Great Resignation.” Professor Anthony Klotz from Texas A&M’s Mays Business School coined the phrase in an interview he gave to Bloomberg Businessweek in May. In his words:

“What we’re seeing is a clear decrease in organizational commitment due to a confluence of factors. Employees have gained a new perspective on what’s truly important to them. The pandemic brought death to our doorstep and that causes people to reflect. But there are other important reasons why loyalties have wavered.”
