In late 2020, Robert Half’s Paul McDonald delved into the hiring outlook for 2021. The second part of that conversation addresses the ways organizations can keep those already on staff during COVID-19. McDonald, Robert Half’s senior executive director, says the businesses that already had strong culture in place were better equipped to adapt to COVID-19. He offers advice for managers, details on their retention concerns, and insight into what employees are looking for beyond flexible work arrangements.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • The reasons nearly 90% of senior managers are worried about losing talent.
  • The steps companies and managers can take to show that they value employees.
  • Why McDonald says company culture is more like an ocean liner than a speedboat.
  • The types of nonfinancial benefits workers are seeking in the absence of raises.
  • The steps employees can take to make themselves more marketable.
  • McDonald’s thoughts on what office work might look like in 2022.
