A survey of American workers by job seeker resource ResumeBuilder.com released in September 2021 revealed the “Great Resignation” that has caused a high number of voluntary “Quits” in 2021 is not over as 1 in 7 workers surveyed – approximately 15 percent of the workforce – said they plan to quit their jobs before the start of 2022.
Resignations peaked in April 2021 with nearly 4 million Americans quitting their jobs that month and they have remained abnormally high for the last several months, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), which also reported that a record-breaking 10.9 million open jobs existed at the end of July 2021.
To determine whether this job exodus would decrease in the remaining months of 2021 or what percentage of the workforce were still planning to quit their jobs before 2022, ResumeBuilder.com surveyed 1,250 employed U.S. adults in August 2021 and asked if they planned to quit and, if so, why. Key findings of the survey included:
Of the 15 percent of respondents that intended to resign between September 2021 and December 2021, 39 percent said they would resign in September 2021, 20 percent said they would resign in October 2021, 17 percent said they would resign in November 2021, and 25 percent said they would resign in December 2021.
The survey found 50 percent of respondents said better pay and benefits were the primary motivator to quit jobs. Other top reasons why people were seeking new job opportunities were starting their own business (44 percent), looking for remote work (43 percent), and finding a job about which they are more passionate (41 percent).
“This is an excellent time to seek out a better-paying job,” explained a Career Counselor who reviewed the survey. “We are seeing, particularly in industries that are experiencing labor shortages, companies that are figuring out ways to attract and retain their workforce, including offering higher wages and perks like college tuition.”
