In the wake of recent global socio-economic events, the labor market is undergoing a transformative shift. The emergence of the ‘Great Resignation,’ ‘Great Reshuffle,’ or ‘Big Quit’ phenomenon underscores the need for a new approach to career and work dynamics. This training course aims to explore and adapt to this evolving landscape by equipping individuals and organizations with the understanding and tools necessary to navigate and thrive in the changing world of work.

The course will consist of interactive sessions, case studies, group discussions, and practical exercises to engage participants in meaningful learning experiences. Expert speakers from various fields will provide insights into different aspects of the changing world of work.

The ‘Great Resignation’ isn’t just about large numbers of people leaving their jobs. It represents a deeper introspection about what people value, what they expect from their employers, and how they envision their career paths. Traditional models of work are being challenged, and a new equilibrium is in the making.

For organizations, understanding this shift is crucial for talent retention, organizational culture refinement, and long-term success. For individuals, navigating this new landscape requires skills and understanding that go beyond traditional career planning.

By the end of this course, participants will have a holistic view of the ongoing shifts in the world of work, equipped with the strategies and insights to turn challenges into opportunities. Whether you’re an HR professional, a team leader, or an individual looking to understand your place in the new work world, this course offers valuable insights and tools to help you thrive.


Taking into consideration these recent trends, the need to inform and empower young people in their educational and/or career path, as well as the popularity and efficiency of podcasts as a digital tool of tackling the ‘great resignation’ effects, the project aims to increase the active participation and the involvement of young people into society through the following objectives:

  1. Improving the capacity of 20 youth workers to engage with youngsters in their communities, and provide information and counseling services in their daily work by developing the necessary competencies of using digital tools and social media platforms.
  2. Empowering 150 youngsters (18- 30) from 6 countries to become active members of society by providing information and guidance about lifelong learning programs and through a series of 6 podcasts during the dissemination stage
  3. Developing an efficient network of 3 EU and 3 non-EU NGOs by creating a sharing space meant to exchange good practices, and efficient tools and improve their services and internationalization.

This training course provides a comprehensive toolkit for individuals and organizations to navigate this new landscape successfully, embracing dignity, flexibility, work-life balance, and prioritizing mental health. By adapting to these changes, participants can not only thrive but also contribute to the creation of a more fulfilling and sustainable future of work.
