Forget going back to the office—people are just quitting instead

More Americans are quitting their jobs than at any other time in at least two decades, adding to the struggle many companies face trying to keep up with the economic recovery. The wave of resignations marks a sharp turn from the darkest days of the pandemic, when many workers craved job security while weathering a national health and economic crisis. In April, the share of U.S. workers leaving jobs was 2.7%, according to the Labor Department, a jump from 1.6% a year earlier to the highest level since at least 2000. The shift by Americans into new jobs and careers is prompting employers to raise wages and offer promotions to keep hold of talent. The appetite for change by employees indicates many professionals are feeling confident about jumping ship for better prospects, despite elevated unemployment rates. While a high quit rate stings employers with greater turnover costs, and in some cases, business disruptions, labor economists say churn typically signals a healthy labor market as individuals gravitate to jobs more suited to their skills, interests and personal lives. In March 2020, Edward Moses was hired as an information-technology specialist at a software company, believing he would be part of a team…

Specifically, he said that he had conducted some market research and generated a list of medium to large size businesses he felt could benefit from his product and services. He wanted to reach out to them but was not sure about the best way to get a meeting with the prospects since they didn’t know him from Adam.

LinkedIn Provides Tips on How to Increase Your Company Page Following

It doesn't get as much attention as other platforms, but LinkedIn has been steadily growing over the past few years, both in terms of total users and active engagement. Over the last five quarters, LinkedIn has reported record levels of engagement, each quarter, while the platform is now up to 740 million members. Which still feels like a bit of a cop out - 'members' is not the same as 'active users' - but even so, the stats show that LinkedIn usage is rising, along with its potential audience reach, and as more regions look to get back to normal in the wake of the pandemic, business activity will also increase, which will inevitably see even more users coming to LinkedIn more often. Which is why it may well be worth re-examining your LinkedIn marketing approach. To help with this, LinkedIn has been sharing a range of case studies that highlight how to use its promotional tools and options, while today, it's also provided some new tips on how to maximize your company presence, and grow your company page followers.
