Many companies are searching for ways to boost retention during what recruiters call an unprecedented hiring environment, and one way to do so is to promote their top performers.
It’s an important option for leaders to consider, as overall job openings nationwide fell to about 10.7 million despite companies not largely increasing layoffs, per the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The quit rate held steady at about 2.8%, or about 4.2 million workers, still far above historic averages, and layoffs remained at about 0.9% — the same rate it has held at for several months now.
Of course, many women in business say it’s not enough to wait to be recognized for your solid performance but to step up yourself. That’s just one of the tips offered by Orlando Business Journal‘s 2022 Women Who Mean Business honorees.
“Don’t wait to become a leader — be the leader you want to be now,” said honoree Shanda Lee, executive vice president of marketing for Apopka-based Finfrock.
We asked the winners what advice they had for women seeking to jumpstart their careers or attain higher leadership positions. Check out what the 2022 honorees shared in the gallery below, listed in alphabetical order:
