Anthony is best known for having coined the phrase “The Great Resignation” in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek in May 2021. In the interview and in an op-ed for NBC THINK shortly after, he identified multiple trends he observed as the pandemic eased, that he predicted would lead to record high voluntary turnover in the US workforce. Anthony’s theory was based on his research on employee resignations, and his expertise in organizational psychology. Since then, as the US economy has experienced eight straight months of record rates of resignations. During this time, Anthony has repeatedly appeared in the media to discuss The Great Resignation, and has met with hundreds of organizational leaders to share his insights for how companies can not only weather The Great Resignation, but strengthen employee engagement through it.

Anthony’s research on resignations has been published in top management journals, and his insights from this research have been featured in Harvard Business Review and the Wall Street Journal. He teaches Organizational Behavior at the doctoral level, Leadership at the MBA level, and HR Management at the undergraduate and graduate levels, which leaves him well-equipped to not just speak, but to engage in conversations with leaders and HR professionals about the workforce issues they are facing, and to offer evidence-based insights for how to respond.

Anthony Klotz’s Speech Topics

  • The Great Resignation and The Future of Work

    The causes of The Great Resignation are multifaceted; not all firms are experiencing it in the same way, because each company’s culture, workforce, and constraints are unique. Therefore, there is no single “best way” for companies to respond. In this presentation, Anthony briefly discusses the four main trends that led him to predict The Great Resignation before sharing actionable, evidence-based insights for how companies can develop company-specific strategies for how to respond to these trends and others that have emerged in the wake of the pandemic. He shares his insights regarding how long this period of elevated resignations may last, and what it means for the future of employee-employer relations, and the future of work more broadly. Finally, he opens the room for questions and conversation, to learn about how the audience is experience this unique moment in the world, and responds to their situations based on his broad expertise in organizational psychology and specific expertise in employee resignations.
