Here’s the episode:

There’s a lot of talk right now about the “great resignation” and the numbers of people leaving the workforce. Regardless of the nuances of that situation and whether or not it poses a problem for specific employers, the topic of keeping junior talent is one that seems particularly relevant right now. In this episode, we discuss:

  • Why do people stay in their jobs

  • What might be particularly important for junior talent

  • Implications for junior talent, their leaders, and their organizations
