Consulting with HR leaders has provided technology providers with a unique vantage point: These vendors, which provide solutions to organizations, know that today’s HR and IT leaders who serve the function are trying to solve a long list of challenges, including the Great Resignation, quiet quitting, the need for skills and what they’re learning from active and passive employee listening.

With the unemployment rate in the U.S. at a near 50-year low, 4 million-plus workers voluntarily quitting their jobs each month and time-to-fill increasing dramatically (in some cases, over 60 business days, more than double the historical average), HR leaders are being forced to look for more creative ways to address their hiring and retention challenges.
Epidemiologists and virus hunters are not the only professionals who have been trawling through rivers of data searching for insights since the start of the COVID-19 crisis. Tech-savvy HR leaders at Fortune 500 companies, in particular, have been turning an eye to their copious people data to drive real transformation inside their organizations.
