Let’s Talk About The Great Resignation
As a lead-up to Season 3, host Kelly Ryan Bailey is joined by Producer Sari Weinerman and Entrepreneur in Residence Michelle Smith, to discuss why The Great Resignation is the theme for the upcoming season of the podcast. The Great Resignation refers to the mass exodus from the workforce we have seen as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Workers have had to confront why, where, and how they work, and businesses have had to confront how they operate, compensate employees, and adapt to this big change. Hear from Kelly, Sari, and Michelle about why this is so important, and get a glimpse at what’s to come in Season 3. Big Takeaways: The 9 to 5 workday was created 100 years ago, which is why it makes perfect sense that we are now reckoning with the structures, laws, and skills we need in today’s workforce. There is a lot of complexity around the ways businesses have to run to survive, which unfortunately often prevent them from providing the necessary benefits to their workers. “I often wonder why work is still time-based, why we're paid off of the amount of time we work versus the outcome. Something might be able to be accomplished in a shorter amount of time. And does that mean it's less valuable?” - Kelly Ryan BaileyCheck out Got Skills wherever you get your podcasts, and learn more about Sari and Michelle at skillsbaby.comThis is a Growth Network Podcasts production.
