The Great Resignation has been a hot topic lately, with many people debating its pros and cons. While some see it as a way to improve their work-life balance, others worry about the impact it could have on their career. But what is the Great Resignation, and why is it so controversial?
The Great Resignation is when someone voluntarily leaves their job, usually without another job lined up. They do this to focus on other areas of their life, such as their family or personal health. While this may seem like a good idea, in theory, there are some potential downsides. For example, leaving your job without another one lined up can be a risky move financially. And if you’re in a highly competitive field, taking time off could put you at a disadvantage when you try to reenter the workforce.
The term “sandwich generation” is used to describe the group of people who are sandwiched between the demands of taking care of their aging parents while also caring for their own children. This can be a difficult juggling act, and employers need to be understanding and accommodating of this demographic. Employees in the sandwich generation may need more flexible working schedules in order to be able to meet the demands of caring for both parents and children. They may also need more time off or different types of benefits, such as elder care benefits. By understanding the needs of employees in the sandwich generation, employers can create a more supportive and productive work environment.
