The global pandemic ushered in tremendous change to industries and economies around the world, including one with significant short- and long-term implications – the impact on employment. Record quit rates, massive retirements, and growing numbers of job openings have put businesses on their heels. Economists say the Great Resignation of 2021 shows no sign of letting up in 2022 and that the focus now needs to be on retention.
However, new research conducted by Milwaukee PR firm Kane Communications Group reveals that 50% of Wisconsin’s working women are considering quitting their jobs. This is 25% higher than the national average.
Join us for our program meeting on January 25th as Kane Communications Group CEO Kimberly Kane and Rotarian Karen Hung discuss the research findings and what employers in Wisconsin can do to retain women at their companies.
