Survey finds employers will need to make significant changes to workplace policies, compensation and benefits to successfully navigate the new landscape

NEW YORK, June 15, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A new survey conducted by Arizent, parent company of American Banker, The Bond Buyer, National Mortgage News, Employee Benefit News and other leading information brands for financial and professional services, finds that employers will need to hone in on their workplace policies, boost compensation and benefits and listen to employees' needs if they hope to successfully navigate the Great Resignation today, and the challenges the future may hold.

Of those surveyed for Arizent's How To Win the War for Talent report, more than seven out of ten employers say that attracting, retaining and maintaining their workforce is a challenge right now. For large companies with 250-2,000+ employees, around half list these challenges as top concerns. For smaller organizations, around a third say this is the case.

"The Great Resignation has ripped through every industry and every organizational level, leaving employers scrambling to fill roles, while keeping their current employees supported and engaged," noted Janet King, Arizent's Vice President of Research. "In 2021, 47 million people voluntarily quit their jobs; that number is expected to balloon even higher, as 23% of workers are actively seeking new roles in 2022."

The research also found that even though 90% of employers admit to recruiting challenges, no one reason is clear. From compensation and flexibility, to advancement opportunities and benefits, the priorities of employees are shifting.

The people leaders in this report acknowledge that flexible work is here to stay, and can serve as a powerful tool: 50% of organizations that offer flexible work say that the approach is highly effective in bringing in new talent.

Each Arizent brand will share further analysis of the research implications for their respective communities, including American Banker's review of why the talent pressures will persist in banking and National Mortgage News deep dive into how servicers are tapping into origination talent.

The implications of the research are also being explored this week at American Banker's DIGITAL BANKING, conference in Austin, Texas, June 13-15, and Financial Planning's INVEST conference, June 16-17 in New York City. Original research is available to subscribers of American Banker and Financial Planning, and the full report can be downloaded at https://www.americanbanker.com/research-report/employers-are-scrambling-for-solutions-amid-the-great-resignation.
