6 Reasons Why American Workers Are Leaving Their Jobs

Updated: May 14, 2022

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, at least 4 million workers resigned from their jobs each month of the second half of 2021.

Here’s why:

📌 Pressurized and unempathetic work culture

📌 Finding better pay elsewhere

📌 Lack of opportunities for advancement or growth

📌 Difficulty finding child-care

📌 Not enough flexibility to accommodate individual schedules

📌 Benefits aren’t comprehensive enough

After navigating the challenges of the pandemic, many workers are feeling tired and burned out.

A July 2020 study by FlexJobs and Mental Health America found that 18% of workers stated their mental health is poor compared to just 5% before the pandemic.

42% said they were experiencing high levels of stress.

This pandemic has shown how work and mental health are intertwined.

The work environment, workload, and perceived support by leaders and colleagues have a direct effect on employee mental health.

Focusing on employee well-being helps reduce stress, burnout, attrition rates and increases job satisfaction, engagement, productivity, and retention rates.

Yet, employers are still reluctant to take responsibility for their employee’s well-being… 🤔

Corporate wellness initiatives must support employees through a holistic approach to health and well-being that helps leaders make the meaningful changes needed to retain and attract top talent.
