More About “The Great Resignation”

“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” — Ayn Rand

You have heard it talked about and read about it recently. I wrote about it in June. It’s the situation where jobs are plentiful and people are disenchanted with where they work now and where their career and life are headed.

Maybe in the CPA profession, we should call it the “mild disenchantment”. Accountants, in my observation, are not one to job hop (as we used to call it). When the millennials hit the scene, “job hopping” became normal so we no longer discarded resumes that documented several prior employers.

However, your people have numerous opportunities to accept a lucrative offer.

Today, I want you to read Dan Hood’s article about “The Great Resignation.” He offers some great advice and addresses the issue in a way that only Dan Hood can.
