A reflective look back & hopeful look ahead
With the New Year nearly upon us, it’s impossible to forget the undeniable bedlam of the past year. Unlike we’d hoped, 2021 felt more like a rerun of 2020’s chaos, uncertainty and challenges. From supply chain calamities to growing social unrest, a worldwide mental health crisis to exploding employee turnover, 2021 impacted everyone and was easy for no one.
Particularly blindsided was the HR ecosystem as a whole. We entered the spotlight with pressures to solve talent acquisition and employee retention dilemmas galore. But we were altogether unprepared for what we didn’t see coming: the Great Resignation.
Conceived by the heightened expectations of employees who were burned out, exhausted, depressed or all of the above, the Great Resignation was a reckoning of global proportions. Workers from all walks of life had reached their boiling point. They wanted more work/life equality, more from their career, more from their employer. And they were unwilling to settle any longer.
But with this new period of employee-first mentality, HR was required to react with little forewarning. Leaders depended on HR as a function that would facilitate the hope of returning to normalcy in 2021. Instead, it came with a whole new set of challenges, roadblocks, hurdles and battles to fight on behalf of HR as a unit or function within an organization.
