Virtual Business Bites | Career Tracking

Employee resignation has been a central workforce topic in 2021. Countless sources have reported on the increasing trend of a rising "quits rate." In fact, in the month of August in the United States, 4.3 million people reportedly resigned from their roles. That places the quits rate at 2.9% and reflects the highest recorded percentage since the Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking the numbers.

In a workforce landscape that has shifted rapidly and dramatically in response to globalization, technology adoption, and pandemic response this "great resignation" trend has caused business leaders significant concern.

In this month's Virtual Business Bites, we’ll discuss how innovative companies are exploring how skills development and career tracking programs help improve team culture, increase employee engagement, and reduce the risk of voluntary team resignation. Join us for an exciting conversation with industry experts Andy Riabokin, Carlson, Garima Gupta, and Brian White.
Andy is a six-year Systems Engineer job turned into a lifetime Recruiting career. Andy started recruiting programmers for early-stage, VC-backed companies in Southern California and later CIO’s for publicly-traded US banks and manufacturing companies. After “running a desk” for 20 years, Andy returned to providing recruiting solutions for Talent Acquisition industry leaders such as Hiretual – AI Sourcing, ZapInfo (exit to Indeed) – Recruiting Process Automation, and JobMa – Video Interview Solutions. Andy developed a keen insight into specific pain points for the recruiter, hiring manager, and candidate and provides technical solutions to meet business requirements.
