The ‘Great Resignation’ shows bosses need to invest more in their staff, according to the founder of workplace training provider MindGym.

‘Company leaders have struggled to keep up,’ said Black, as MindGym revenues rose by nearly a quarter. 

He added: ‘As a result, the corporate world is experiencing the Great Resignation as an unprecedented number of employees quit their job for something new. As one of our clients put it, ‘The war for talent is over – the employee won’.’ 

The coaching group made £48.7m in revenue in the year to March 31, a 24 per cent increase on the previous year. 

It swung to a £500,000 loss from a profit of £300,000 the year before. 

Black said: ‘We have had a good start to the new financial year.’
