“I’m quitting”, “two weeks’ notice” and other terms related to an employee resigning can be the worst phrase a manager hears. But it’s happening all too often with a surge of people leaving their current jobs for new opportunities. Corporate America has been experiencing a movement termed ‘The Great Resignation’ since mid-2021 and there are no signs of it trailing off.

Staffing disruptions are happening at a high rate, especially in the healthcare and technology industries. With a constantly evolving landscape, IT jobs are opening left and right. IT leaders are faced with the challenge of keeping the team members they have, filling open positions and maintaining normal workloads to keep the business running as usual. How does an IT team survive the spiraling effect?
