This article argues that while the pandemic gave employees the freedom they wanted, it also revealed that employers have never fully valued their employees—this might explain why the number of employees quitting their jobs has steadily increased since 2009.


This article by Glenn Llopis, writing for Forbes, identifies the following two points about why he thinks this problem will get even worse:
  1. Employers stifle their employees' influence over what and how things are done. Employers and leaders are not open to ideas from people who don't have a title or officially recognized status as an expert. Therefore, they close their people off from new thinking or innovative ideas that might disrupt the status quo.
  2. Employers actively discourage authenticity and openness, even though they say they encourage it. Employers and leaders see their employees in narrowly defined ways, based on their roles, demographic groups, or credentials listed on their résumés.
