“2021 was a year to remember as The Great Resignation routinely made headlines as record numbers of employees quit their jobs. This pandemic-driven phenomenon is largely attributed to people re-evaluating priorities and re-thinking how and where they work. This assumption is further developed as results of a recent survey by Gartner show that 65% of employees pondered the place work should have in their lives amid the pandemic.
Unfortunately, the high level of resignations that is driving a more volatile labor market is predicted to continue. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4.3 million workers left their jobs in December 2021, and 73% of currently employed workers say they are actively thinking about quitting their jobs, according to Joblist. The number of Americans quitting has now exceeded pre-pandemic highs for eight straight months, according to Statista.” Says CEO of XIL Health, LLC, Susan Lang.
