His has also written for the Harvard Business Review, MIT Sloan Management Review and The Wall Street Journal.
Stemming from his research on resignations, Anthony is also known for predicting a major pandemic-related labor shift and coining it the “Great Resignation” in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek in May of 2021. He explained the reasons behind his prediction in an op-ed for NBC News later that month. Since then, his theory has been supported by months of record numbers of resignations in the United States and evidence that this shift is happening globally as well. Anthony has discussed The Great Resignation with multiple media outlets including CNN, CNBC, The New York Times, The Financial Times, BBC, The Today Show, and NPR.
