“The great resignation is coming,” says Anthony Klotz, an associate professor of management at Texas A&M University.
This makes it sound like it’s some asteroid or maybe sharks, and all we can do is brace ourselves, get our post-apocalyptic jumpsuits ready, and invest in crypto-currency. Or something.
Klotz is right to expect a great resignation–turnover is normal, and people postpone leaving jobs in times of uncertainty. We can all say, with a surety, that life has been uncertain for the past 15 months or so. And it makes sense that the response is people resigning.
