We exit Q2 2021 with hope – and a healthy amount of uncertainty for the second half of the year. After a year-plus of devastating shocks and setbacks, the U.S. economy is poised to boom. The GDP is expected to surpass pre-pandemic levels, the unemployment rate was 5.9% exiting June – down nearly 50% year-over-year – and all states but Hawaii have planned to be fully opened on July 1, 2021.
As pandemic life recedes employers may face a new challenge: The Great Resignation. Workforce Logiq’s key predictive and proprietary employment volatility indices reveal a 69% quarterly increase in the number of workers in top volatility categories – signaling more U.S. professional and knowledge worker candidates are interested in exploring other job opportunities or unsolicited recruiting messages than ever before.
