According to the Wall Street Journal, nearly 3.4 million people in the U.S. chose to give their boss their two-week notice in April of this year. In fact, the proportion of American workers who quit their jobs has recently reached the highest level in 17 years.
What’s driving this? A booming economy combined with record-low unemployment, which turns out to be the recipe for confidence and risk-taking.
So if you’re one of these people thinking about making a big change in your employment — or if your role has anything to do with hiring/firing — there’s a lot to consider.
Join us for the November Biz Café, as we bring together an HR expert AND an attorney to help you navigate the course. Our featured speakers will be Melissa Marsh, human resource expert and founder of HR In Demand, and Molly Rezac, counsel at Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C., for a session called “The Art of Moving On.”
During this interactive presentation, Marsh and Rezac will offer up tips about separating employment gracefully — and safely — for employers and employees.
In this session, participants will:
- Understand the employment relationship in terms of power, communication and employee rights
- Learn how to make tough decisions about exits
- Gather knowledge about navigating the actual exit, including how to open the discussion, how much notice to give, requirements for employers and employees and tips on making it easier for all
Don’t forget: Due to popular demand, Biz Café is now from 3-5 p.m.
Please join us at Rounds Bakery from 3 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 14; the program starts at 4 p.m. It’s free to attend, no RSVPs are needed, and everyone is welcome!
We’ll see you there!
