In what’s being dubbed the "Great Resignation,” around 4 million people quit their jobs in June alone and 52 percent of employed workers plan to actively job hunt this year.

Providing talent development opportunities, team building, and a much desired sense of purpose at work, skills-based volunteering addresses many of the root causes for today's high rates of attrition.
