We're in the midst of what is being called The Great Resignation. In March 2021 it was reported that 41% of employees were considering leaving their current employer and 46% said they’d likely move on because they can now work remotely1. The mood that has accompanied remote working has impacted lots of industries and absolutely needs to be a consideration of employers and HR departments everywhere.
One of the biggest drivers in the decision to leave a role is the disconnect between leaders and their employees. Whilst business leaders were more likely to report that they were thriving with the new ways of working, 37% of the global workforce reported that they were being asked to do too much by their employers. Poor levels of empathy and a lack of acknowledgement for the hard work of employees quickly leads to higher levels of staff turnover.
At Cardly, we're helping organisations each and every day to acknowledge and celebrate their team no matter where they might be in the world. We make the sending of highly personalised Christmas cards quick and easy, but we can also help celebrate employee birthdays and work anniversaries too! Each card is an opportunity for an organisation and management eams to show that they care. The surprise and delight of receiving real mail and getting an acknowledgement is a small yet powerful gesture that employees really appreciate.
