The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly affected our lives in many ways, and it seems to have transformed the American workforce.

Last year the experts dubbed the shifting economy “the great resignation” as millions of workers left the workforce during the pandemic. Now, thanks to more data, the experts say this period has become “the great reshuffle.” Millions of workers are still leaving their jobs each month, but the data shows that the majority of people are not leaving the workforce for good. Instead, people are seeking new careers, often in new fields, working for companies that can offer great benefits, flexibility, and a positive internal culture that values them and their contributions.

That means there is more competition than ever when it comes to finding and retaining your staff at a time when no shelter or rescue organization can afford to lose anyone. So this week, our guests share some insight on how you can gain the hiring edge.

We want to hear from you about your staffing situation. Are you fully staffed? Are you struggling to find and retain workers? Share your story with us. You may be featured on a future episode! Email: podcast@bestfriends.org
