Employees are thinking about quitting during the recession


The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many employees to consider quitting their jobs due to increased stress and burnout, according to a recent survey conducted by Morneau Shepell. The survey found that 24% of Canadian employees are thinking about leaving their current job, with millennials being the most likely to consider quitting. The reasons for this desire to quit include increased workload, lack of work-life balance, and concerns about job security. HR leaders should take note of these findings and take proactive steps to address employee concerns and prevent a potential talent exodus. This may involve implementing flexible work arrangements, providing mental health support, and enhancing communication and transparency. Employers should also focus on fostering a positive work culture and recognizing employee contributions to boost morale and engagement. By prioritizing employee well-being and addressing their concerns, HR leaders can minimize turnover and retain top talent during these challenging times.
