Retensa’s “Biggest Quits” Contenders
Every year after publishing the first Biggest Quits list in 2005, media and followers began to ask us “What about [this person]?” or “Who almost made the list?” As a result, we created the list of Close “Contenders”. This includes the best of the rest of the hundreds of resignations we track every year. Resignations impact organizations, schools, industries, the economy, and society but not everyone can make the Top 10 list. Close contenders did not earn a spot at the top of the list but deserve mention because their quits are noteworthy or highly visible.
