with the increase in the number of vaccinations and the improvement of the new crown epidemic, US companies have begun to require employees to return to work in the office. However, at the same time, American professionals are setting off Resignation wave. The latest report from the employment website Monster.com shows that 95% of employees in the United States are considering changing jobs, and 92% of employees are even willing to switch jobs to find suitable positions amid the so-called “great resignation.”
“When everyone is in the throes of the epidemic, many people can only bow their heads and give in; but now they are showing another kind of self-confidence.” said Brownsack, an executive at Monster.com. According to statistics from the website, job burnout and lack of growth opportunities are the reasons why most people want to quit.
According to data from the US Department of Labor, more than 4 million people resigned in the United States in April this year, a record high in the number of resignations within a month. At the same time, job seekers have more choices. The latest statistics from the Ministry of Labor show that the number of job vacancies reached a record 9.3 million. A Microsoft survey of more than 30,000 people worldwide found that 41% of respondents are considering quitting or changing jobs this year.
The BBC reported on the 1st that analysis believes that there are different reasons for working people to resign after the epidemic has eased. Some people feel bad about working from home during the epidemic, and they don’t feel the care of the company. Therefore, they hope to change to a more humane job after the epidemic. However, there are also people who discover new meanings in life by working from home, and adjust the priorities of life matters, hoping to better take care of their families and children, so they want to change to a job that can better balance career and family. Some analysts also pointed out that contemporary young professionals have higher requirements and expectations for their work units and unit leaders. If the work does not go well, it will be easier to make the decision to quit and change jobs. This trend has occurred before the epidemic, and the epidemic The shock to come has exacerbated this trend.
When to order employees to return to the office to work has become a headache for American corporate executives. CNBC cited a survey of more than 350 corporate executives that 70% of them plan to return employees to the office by this fall, but they must first do their ideological work for employees who want to continue working from home.
