The Great (re-)Balance

The Great (re-)Balance
Reimagining Work
October 31, 2022

The height of the pandemic lockdown caused widespread job losses, followed by a rise in the number of people quitting work, a sharp uptick the likes of which we haven’t seen in decades. On this episode, Brian Lowery talks to Rakesh Kochhar and Julianna Horowitz of the Pew Research Center who conducted a study of what's been called The Great Resignation. Then, we hear from Julia Pollack, Chief Economist at Zip Recruiter who discusses another work trend that's making headlines. Is "quiet quitting" a bad idea for your career or just another way to address work/life balance?
