How to responsibly participate in 'The Great Resignation'Play
This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 31. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- The U.S. Department of Labor announced earlier this month that more than 4.5 million Americans left their jobs in November 2021 alone. One of the side effects of the pandemic has been what some industry experts are calling "The Great Resignation," or alternatively, "The Big Quit." The working theory is that the pandemic has offered folks a moment to reassess their lives and how their careers fit into what they want long-term. We take listener calls and talk about why we've seen so many people making significant career moves with Kathy Robinson, founder and an executive career coach at Turning Point, a career counseling network, and Jennifer Lane, a certified financial advsior and founder of Compass Planning Associates, a fee-only financial planning firm based in Westwood, Massachusetts.
- We follow our conversation about work with a couple of special recipes for your next happy hour. Lonnie Newburn, owner of the Boston Shaker, a craft cocktail shop in Somerville, joins us to share some tips and techniques, answer listener questions, and talk about the toll the pandemic has taken on industries like his that rely on people spending time in public indoor spaces.
