Tech companies are notorious for a lack of employee diversity, with 73% of jobs being held by men and 62% of jobs held by white employees, according to a recent Zippia report. Despite all of the large tech companies having made statements and promises around their diversity initiatives (such as these examples from Meta, Microsoft, Amazon, Netflix and Google), their job descriptions say otherwise…
Q: Are you considering a job change (quitting) this year?
Look at those numbers. Only 23% said they would NOT consider a job change in 2023 – meaning in the next 7 months. How confident are you that you know who is staying at your organization? This emphasizes the importance of working on Employee Retention as part of your recruiting model. That’s right, you have to “Re-Recruit” your existing staff. We know it sounds odd since you’re already paying them, but facts are facts. People are still considering moves.
