Throughout mid-2020, employee-initiated separations were down 27%; however, that trend may soon be headed in the other direction. According to a 2020 Employee Burnout Survey conducted by IPSOS (a Global Market Research firm), 1 in 4 US employees plan to leave their employer as the pandemic subsides. The numbers are even high among millennials and parents with school-aged children (1 in 3). Employees are feeling burnt out and motivated to make a move.
For businesses, it’s important to be prepared for the change in employee behavior. You must look at why employees may look to leave and how to retain your top talent.
