Remember ‘The Great Resignation’? Back in March 2021, all the talk was of the 41% of employees considering leaving their job or changing their profession. According to the Office for National Statistics, job vacancies in the UK were at a record high of almost 1 million.
Well, it hasn't gone away – the number of UK vacancies even topped 1 million this summer. And the story is similar in the US, with almost 11 million unfilled positions and many firms finding it difficult to recruit and fill key roles.
A toxic workplace – especially during the pandemic – is cited as a common reason for leaving a job, despite economic uncertainty. It can also leave employees feeling overworked, underwhelmed and demotivated. It can also come with physical symptoms like burnout, fatigue, stress and illness.
