I can't get no satisfaction has become this generation's mantra and anthem. After reading the latest article from FastCompany, it is clear that dissatisfaction at work is the key contributor to resignations. 63% of workers who quit a job in 2021/2022 cite a lack of opportunities for advancement as a contributing factor.

What is the secret sauce for employers? Employee Flexibility not in remote or hybrid work but in a new employment job model. The new approach does not fit neatly in the traditional org chart but highlights employees' interests, expertise, and passions. This approach would allow employees to move across swim lanes and departments and create more of a team approach to solving business problems. The goal is to increase innovation and bridge different roles within the organization. 

Hybrid jobs embrace the idea that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to careers. As employees navigate the complex workplace ecosystem, they may find that their skills and interests change. What brought them joy two years ago may be a source of frustration today. The new pursuit for employee retention will be to create a sustainable workplace. One that brings out the best in existing employees fosters excellence, innovation, and creativity and attracts the next generation of talent. The workplace's future is here and will disrupt decades of tradition and structure.

It seems like it's not just remote work being more attractive, but the options for remote work and the online connection we have to different companies/options has simply widened the pool of competition. If you only looked in your city for similar jobs, your satisfaction may have seemed high enough; but when you look at jobs all across the country and see how much better suited some companies are because the pool of options has been widened, that same satisfactory job now looks worse by comparison. I expect this will require companies to do better and workers will be the winners in this free market!
