Friends With Money #39: Riding the great resignation wave

Hosted By

What is the great resignation and is it really happening? This week Money's Julia Newbould talks with behavioural economist and psychologist Phil Slade about this recent phenomenon.

Phil shares some tips for people who are thinking about leaving their current job. The pair also discuss:

  • Why everyone is re-evaluating what they want out of life;
  • How to run to a job, not from one;
  • Why the way that you leave one job is the way you start a new one.
