Future of Work III – Work-Life balance or Life-Work balance?
Great resignation, silent quitting… The pandemic has changed the place work takes in our lives. According to a study by French institute Ipsos, one in three people in the country have changed their career plans since the beginning of the sanitary crisis. At the same time, the Fondation Jean Jaurès tells us that the proportion of professionally active people who think work is a “very important” part of their lives has shrunk to 24% (60% in 1990). The number of people resigning from their jobs is also the highest in 15 years… and France is no exception, the same trends can be observed in several developed countries.

Navigating recruitment challenges in Asia-Pacific
Even amidst all of the recent global disruptions, life went on. The world still turns, and we all know what makes it go around. Asia-Pacific has seen the sharpest increase in business activities in recent memory, and companies are eager to make up for lost time. Talent acquisition and retention in the post-pandemic era are the immediate challenge that they face, as I wrote last week.
Companies not only need people back in jobs, but want them better skilled and prepared to take on a more volatile business environment. The pandemic proved that the unexpected does happen – and the companies that came out on top were the ones that were better prepared.
Apart from the requisite skills required for the job, additional skills and professional knowledge that is adaptable to market developments and economic changes are important.
So how might businesses get ahead of the competition in the race to secure this kind of talent? Well, before we get into the details of that, for many companies, a bit of damage control is of equal priority.
