How to Prepare for Boomerang Workers After the Great Resignation
A record 4.3 million U.S. workers quit their jobs in August. Add that to the 20 million people who voluntarily left their jobs since April, and it’s clear that the U.S. workforce is experiencing a shift of historical proportion. Dubbed the “Great Resignation,” the rapid pace of this trend has dominated headlines, unsettled business leaders, and left many scrambling to adjust to the unprecedented levels of turnover.

However, looking down the long line of significant market shifts of the past, the pendulum usually swings back. In this case, I predict that this swing will carry a surprisingly large number of former employees—or “boomerangs”—back to their previous companies over the next few years. 

Still Time to find Gnome on the Roam in Central Kitsap
The Silverdale Gnome is on the Roam this holiday shopping season, and we hope consumers are having as much fun finding him while out shopping as the Chamber had in hiding him! To further incentivize shopping local and getting customers into our local businesses, the Chamber will be having weekly drawings for cool Silverdale merch and a grand prize drawing for a 2-night stay for 2 at the beautiful Alderbrook Resort and Spa. Encourage your customers to participate by taking a selfie with Dale at your business and post it to their social media using #gnomeontheroam. Each successful post will be entered into our random prize drawings (one photo per person, per location permitted).

Huge Chamber thanks to Amy Zinkhon of Suitcases on Standby
Travel for putting together this amazing prize package.
