A survey conducted by Monster found that half of workers left their previous job due to feeling underappreciated, and having a salary that was “too low” was a close second. Different methods were used to inform their employers of their decision, such as in-person delivery, a formal letter, or email. In addition, 16% of respondents said they had not provided a full two weeks' notice, and 46% said they would provide less than two weeks' notice if their new role wouldn't allow for two. Most workers said they informed their direct manager or supervisor first when leaving their job, and 51% were most nervous to tell them. Finally, HR professionals should consider implementing stay interviews to help encourage retention and better understand what employees enjoy about their job and what may lead them to leave.

Meta and IBM launched a new initiative called the AI Alliance to redefine what it means to be an open-source model. The Alliance is made up of 50 founding members across industry, startup, academia, research, and government, and it will work on a project basis to explore the different levels of openness and establish standards for releasing models.

Stanford psychologist Kelly McGonigal says that viewing stress more positively can make people stronger, smarter, and happier. McGonigal recently published a book, The Upside of Stress, which focuses on the concept that viewing stress as helpful, rather than harmful, can lead to better health, emotional well-being and productivity. This involves viewing one's body's stress response as helpful, viewing oneself as able to handle and learn from stress, and viewing stress as something everyone deals with. It is important to understand that stress can be harmful, but focusing on the fear that reality is killing you is not helpful. People can find meaning in stressful situations, which can help reduce the harmful effects of stress. Finally, viewing stress as an opportunity to learn and grow can be beneficial in the long term.

Coles and Woolworths have been urged to reduce the price of red meat in the lead-up to Christmas, with the federal government warning that Australians are still paying too much for beef mince and steak. A Senate inquiry into the "price gouging" of the supermarkets has been announced and the Nationals have called for the ACCC to hold an inquiry as well. The rapid plunge in prices came from a shift to dry weather, oversupply of animals in saleyards, and bottlenecks in the abattoir sector. Heavy rains have recently driven up cattle prices. It is argued that while supermarkets may be able to sustain low meat prices, independent local butchers may find it hard to compete. The Australian Meat Industry Council has noted that dropping retail prices won’t help the backlog of livestock in the system, and that meat processors deserve to make a profit. Coles and Woolworths have responded that while livestock prices have gone down, other costs in the supply chain have gone up, and that they pay more than the industry market indicators for beef.

If a student is not sure about any aspect of the question, they should ask their tutor/lecturer for clarification.

This article examines the challenges facing frontline workers who cannot work remotely and are unable to benefit from the flexibility of hybrid work.

Employers should take this into account when designing flexibility and perk strategies to maximize frontline employee attraction, performance and retention.
