Organizations are tired of hearing they need to change, it’s the step by step HOW do it that they are desperate for.


The BIG QUIT Survival Guide is your lifeline to the new rules of engagement. Everything you will need to overcome the Great Resignation is all here:

  • Find out how to retain your best people (and it’s not just about money).

  • Learn how to wow the best new hires (hint: they want to be understood as people first).

  • Deal with the challenges of remote and hybrid workers because WFH is here to stay.

  • Access over 30 printable Survival Tactics to immediately act upon now!

  • Use the 3-R Scale to see if your company’s Requirements outweigh the Rewards and Respect employees seek—and ensure that scale tips in your favor.

“It’s simple, yet complex. In order for employees to want to stay in a job, they need to feel their employer respects their physical, emotional, financial, and social health.  In The BIG QUIT Explosion, Merrylue Martin demonstrates the importance of this and how employers can effectively make it happen.”
