After a year and a half of uncertainty, workers are now more certain than ever of what they will and won’t tolerate at work. Stress, burnout, and isolation have put new expectations on the table. And if companies can’t or won’t put the human at the center of work, employees are more than happy to look for opportunity elsewhere.
In this survey, Workhuman® iQ polled more than 3,500 workers in the U.S., U.K., Ireland, and Canada on their connection to their jobs and their companies and what’s on the horizon for their careers. Nearly 4 in 10 told us they’re planning to look for a new job in the next 12 months. This projected voluntary turnover has the potential to cost businesses billions – and that’s a conservative estimate.
This report analyzes findings from a Workhuman survey of employee sentiment to reveal simple yet proven workplace practices – such as appreciation, communication, inclusion, and flexibility – that will help your organization thrive even in the midst of uncertainty.
