How To Sidestep ‘The Great Resignation’


Recommended Posts

By Hannah Nokes and Maggie Z. Miller 

From a business perspective, the turbulent year of 2021 will be remembered for “The Great Resignation,” when record numbers of employees left their jobs.

But when it comes to the worldwide problem of talent shortages across many industries, perhaps employers haven’t seen anything yet. New Year’s resolutions of retaining top employees or finding the right talents when recruiting may be even more difficult to achieve.

In a survey conducted in the fall of 2021 by LumApps in collaboration with CMSWire, 71% of U.S. participants said the pandemic made them

, and 63% have considered a new career in the past year.

All that data fuels concerns among many employers that the talent shortage will continue to be a major problem in 2022. Everest Group’s 2022 Key Issues Study shows companies’

now is “finding enough talent to run the business.”

The talent crunch, along with the trend for many companies to move from 100% remote work to a hybrid model or back to a fully in-person model, is causing business leaders to reconsider what keeps their teams happy and productive. Many are asking: How can we keep employees invested in and passionate about our brand in this new hybrid environment? 

One key to keeping the best employees on board may lie in how well companies give them the opportunity to put their own skills and interests into action toward making a difference in the world. In the LumApps/CMS poll regarding “The Great Reflection” among workers, among the reasons cited are heightened demands for flexibility and inclusivity in the workplace, more career growth and companies that walk the talk about corporate social responsibility.

Indeed, employees’ special gifts and passions for social issue involvement contribute toward helping their company’s overall impact efforts and also to employees’ fulfillment. In the LumApps/CMS poll, 76% of respondents said they’re looking for corporate social responsibility and 73% want to choose employers with a reputation for supporting diversity, equity and inclusion.

Just as businesses have unique abilities and resources to solve problems for their communities, their employees have their own set of talents that can add a rich dimension to the company’s social-impact profile.

Unleashing those talents can be as simple and informal as assigning appropriate roles to your employees for a volunteer project. If there’s a photographer on the team, for example, have them take photos at the event. Have a group that loves to haul things in their pickup trucks? Put them in charge of collecting the cans from your office locations for your food drive. 

Over time, of course, you can become more intentional and strategic about how you use your employees’ skills. We conduct an employee survey or focus group with our client teams to identify employee interests such as public speaking, strategic planning, committee leadership, budget planning and more. Effectively leveraging these skills and interests helps extend our client’s impact footprint in the community, even with limited formal staff resources. 

Employees, especially the younger workforce, are looking for a deeper meaning in their work and to feel as though they are contributing to something impactful. Millennials are especially vigilant about researching and weighing the values and cultures of companies they want to work for. Gen Z is following suit, looking for authentic commitments from their employer to take action to solve the world’s problems.

This is worth the effort: Recent

show that 95% of employees believe businesses should benefit all stakeholders, including the communities in which they operate, and 70% say they wouldn’t work for a company without a strong purpose.

Employers are understanding that social impact is a critical component to an effective business strategy. In today’s connected and interdependent world, employees increasingly demand that businesses and their suppliers take part in creating solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. It’s time to fire up those special talents and passions to build engagement and loyalty.

      The Auto Care Association announced it has been
      link hidden, please login to view. “This prestigious award is a testament to the association’s commitment to creating an inclusive, supportive and dynamic work environment for its employees,” Auto Care said in a news release.
      With a remarkable 95% of employees affirming that the Auto Care Association is a great place to work, the organization stands out significantly above the national average. This recognition is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of the Great Place to Work’s rigorous, data-driven methodology.
      The survey highlighted several areas where the Auto Care Association excels, including management’s approachability, effective coordination and assignment of tasks and the provision of necessary resources and equipment to employees.
      Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, the Auto Care Association employs more than 40 U.S.-based workers and is renowned for its advocacy, educational, networking, technology and market-intelligence resources. It plays a pivotal role in the automotive aftermarket, driving innovation and competitiveness through its evaluation of market trends and development of new tools to adapt to evolving patterns.
      “This certification is not just a milestone for our association but a reflection of the hard work, dedication, and passion of our team,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO of the Auto Care Association. “We are deeply committed to ensuring our workplace is not only rewarding and supportive but also fosters the growth and development of all our employees.”
      The Auto Care Association added that its “culture is built on a foundation of mutual respect, collaboration and a shared vision for the future of the automotive aftermarket.”
      Auto Care uses the acronym TCIF to summarize its corporate values. It stands for Teamwork, Curiosity, Integrity and Fun. These values “have cultivated a workplace where 97% of employees feel management is approachable and hires people who fit well within the organization,” according to Auto Care.
      “Great member service starts with a strong internal foundation,” said Lea Diamond, vice president, people operations, for the Auto Care Association. “Our strengths internally are reflected in the level of service and care we provide to our members and the industry.”

      A resilient effort by Christian Eckes and the
      link hidden, please login to view team salvaged a top-10 finish in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS) opener at Daytona International Speedway on Friday night. The driver of the No. 19 NAPA Auto Care Chevrolet Silverado RST finished 10th despite being involved in three multi-truck accidents in the second half of the event. His 10th-place result earned him 39 points and places him third in the NCTS championship standings.
      Eckes was buried deep in the field after qualifying 25th, but he instantly darted toward the front once the green flag flew. Eckes’ aggression was immediately evident as he made three-wide moves on the opening lap. He narrowly avoided a multi-truck accident on lap six and joined the top-10 on lap 13. A one-lap dash to close Stage 1 saw Eckes grab three points in eighth position on lap 20.

      Crew chief Charles Denike kept Eckes on track during the caution to inherit track position and found themselves in the mix for the race lead when Stage 2 went green at lap 27. Eckes was in the thick of the battle for the race lead and pushed his new MHR teammate Tyler Ankrum to the Stage 2 win. Eckes pocketed another nine points by running second at the end of the segment on lap 40.

      Under the second-stage caution, Eckes pitted for four tires and fuel and restarted 12th on lap 45. A caution on lap 57 allowed him, and several other competitors, to make their final stop for fuel. Eckes restarted 16th on lap 62 and rocketed to the front with some aggressive drafting. He briefly took the lead on lap 72 but was involved in an accident on lap 79 while running second. Despite losing a lap, the NAPA Auto Care team made ample repairs and allowed Eckes to regain his lap on lap 86. With five laps to go, he suffered minor damage in an incident which set up an overtime restart. After restarting 24th with two laps remaining, Eckes drove halfway back through the field but was swept into a track-blocking accident on the final lap and suffered significant damage.

      Eckes was able to refire his Chevrolet Silverado RST and drove back around to the checkered flag to finish 10th and start the season just four points out of the championship lead.

      “Tonight was a wild night, for sure,” Eckes said. “We were able to drive our NAPA Auto Care Chevrolet up to the front a couple times and were going to be one of the trucks to beat. I was able to work well with our teammates for a while tonight until we got turned off Turn 4 there with 20-to-go or so. I’m proud of the guys on our NAPA team to get it fixed and got our lap back. We never gave up tonight and we saved a ton of points because of it.”
      Start / Finish: 25 / 10
      Points Standing / Total: 3rd / 39 pts. (-4)

      At the CES exhibition in 2019, Intel's subsidiary Mobileye announced that it was seeking to expand strategic cooperation with the Chinese automaker Great Wall Automobile (GMW). Mobileye is a leading supplier of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automatic Driving (AD).
      As part of the partnership, Great Wall will seek to integrate Mobileye's ADAS system into its various models (L0-L2) in the next three to five years. While integrating the ADAS system, the two companies will also cooperate to develop a higher level automatic driving system (L3 and higher level) according to the unique characteristics of the Chinese road.
      The potential partnership with Great Wall Automobile will expand Mobileye's growing business in China, and the company's ADAS technology has maintained a good momentum in the Chinese market. With the increasing demand of automobile manufacturers for ADAS solutions and becoming a global standard requirement, Mobileye uses the large amount of data it collects from the deployed ADAS systems to enhance and achieve a higher level of automatic driving.
      Mobileye L0-L2 ADAS: Mobileye is the global leader in the research and development of computer vision technology for ADAS systems. Mobileye's technology, supported by its SoC product EyeQ <, can provide power for L0, L1 and L2 passive safety functions such as forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and lane maintenance, and millions of vehicles from 25 automobile manufacturers around the world have adopted Mobileye's technology.
      L2 + Level: Mobileye's L2 + Level ADAS improves L1-L2 driver's auxiliary safety function and provides more convenience for drivers on today's roads. L2 + ADAS enhances the semi-automatic driving function of vehicles by using Mobile Road Experience Management (REM) map solution, and realizes self-adaptive endurance, lane maintenance assistance and other advanced functions in more complex driving scenarios such as urban environment using Roadbook () data. Although drivers of L2 + technology vehicles must be alert to confirm their actions and take over when needed, the improved functions provide great convenience and safety, while reducing the gap with higher-level automatic driving.
      Level 3 and Full Auto Driving: In addition to integrating ADAS and L2+, Mobileye also supports automobile manufacturers in developing higher-level auto driving, including L3 for passenger cars and L4 and L5 for fully automated vehicle fleets. The cooperation between Mobileye and Great Wall Automobile has increased Mobileye's partners in L3 systems, including BMW, Fiat-Chrysler, Ulai, Nissan and SAIC.
