Survey Finds Job Stability is Motivating Employees to Stay Put
There are signs the Great Resignation may be slowing
Employee desire for job stability is an underestimated benefit — positive news for employers trying to prevent a talent drain.

As “stewards of the workplace,” HR professionals have the knowledge, expertise, tools and support to lead the opportunity to get these needs met, strengthen job stability and improve company value, Johnny Taylor, president and CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), said in an op-ed for HR Dive.
In getting started, HR should take an employee-centric approach to assessing worker needs because different generations place higher value on different benefits, Paychex said.
