The Great Resignation and the Future of Work

January 10, 2023

The COVID-19 pandemic reshaped society as we know it. In this post-pandemic world, the balance of power has shifted from employer to employee. Workers are demanding respect and expecting a greater quality of life, in many cases refusing a return to the traditional office.

So what happens when companies can no longer rely on culture and on-premise experience to attract and retain employees? And how can companies adapt and thrive in this new environment?

Behavioral scientist, psychologist, and futurist, Aaron McEwan believes that businesses must place people at the center. Harnessing data and insights that focus on personalising employees’ experiences, allowing for flexibility and autonomy, and rethinking the purpose of traditional office spaces is the future of work.

In this episode, Dart and Aaron talk about the Great Resignation, how the pandemic reshaped society, the “Netflix Experience” and personalization, how employers underestimated the workforce and how remote workers proved them wrong, the future of workplaces, and much more.

Topics include:

  • What business leaders are most worried about
  • The commoditization of work
  • The feasibility of personalized work experiences
  • What all managers need to know about employees
  • The challenge of understanding employee desires
  • The role of managers in the future
  • How we consistently underestimate the workforce
  • The anti-work movement
