Hourly workers across the nation are fed up, and they’ve made it known. Millions have quit their jobs in a mass movement that’s been dubbed “The Great Resignation,” contributing to the current labor shortage for employers reliant on hourly employees. As a result, many of these businesses are shortening operating hours, closing their doors and losing sales.
To combat this, a business’s focus should shift to bringing workers back, which means an internal reflection of any outdated hiring practices is probably long overdue. While internally you may be thinking, “we’ll hire anyone who walks in the door,” your workflows and policies may be telling a different story.
