People are finding opportunities elsewhere, especially those in leadership positions. We are trying to figure out how to retain all of the information. Some functions have gone out to subcontractors along the way, based on what was most cost-efficient at the time, so that knowledge is no longer within the company. Not only are you trying to find somebody with new skills, but you're also trying to find somebody to pick up and learn something that no one in the company has knowledge of.

Trying to figure out how to compensate for some of those trends is a bit challenging but the roles themselves are also changing. For example, even things like supply chain have a digital component to almost all of that, so it’s a matter of identifying people that are around there. My company is very open to moving you around wherever you'd like to go. If you want to work in a plant next year, then you can go ahead and apply. There's opportunity in that way but there are just a lot more enticing things in terms of compensation or projects that you can work on, or even if you’re just testing the waters.

Having just been acquired, I've had less turnover than expected. It’s probably about the same rate as everybody that is seeing in this post-COVID world but it wasn't unexpected.

People are leaving because they can find more pay elsewhere and they can work from home. My employer will not go to the scenario that seems to be the more favorable one for IT professionals across the board, which is remote working. That will provide further challenges for us but I think we'll end up with some exceptions. It's been a fascinating journey to figure out where we should land on the question, "What is fair? What is equitable?"
Director of IT in Software, 201 - 500 employees
I think every business experiences loosing talent for one reason to another. There is the want to work remotely and not every employer allows it so this affects some employees and they decides to work elsewhere. There is also the great resignation phenomenon happening as well
