“Employers have been grappling with these disruptions for a few years now, but the trend of these dynamics, if anything, appear to be getting more protracted,” Ibiwoye stated.
She noted that there have been resignations in the banking sector and other sectors, escalating trend of migrations, multi-jobbing, dollarisation of talent market, non-negotiability of hundred percent remote working, new and varying demands for better work life balance, demands for mental health support, escalating cost of talent, a reassessment of individual priorities, an increasing trend of employee value-based approach to employment and erosion of employee loyalty among others.
