As per the report of US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4.5 million Americans quit their jobs in the month of November 2021. Resignations have remained abnormally high for the last several months. Furthermore, according to LinkedIn’s job-seekers research, 82 percent of the Indian workforce expressed an interest in switching jobs in 2022.
Managers are now navigating the ripple effects of the pandemic, as employees re-evaluate their careers and leave their jobs in record numbers. Companies are keen to explore the reason that drives this recent shift. The highest resignation rates are among mid-career employees and the worst hits are technology and healthcare industries.
ILO Monitor stated that around 114 million people lost their jobs over 2020, while the United Nations recorded the Covid jobs crisis 'most severe' since the 1930s. The pandemic caused an "unprecedented" hit to the global economy in 2020, destroying the equivalent of 225 million full-time jobs, as per the UN. According to this data, at the onset of the pandemic, the job market was struggling with uncertainty and mass layoffs. The number of people who lost their jobs went in millions, and those lucky enough to remain employed remained put in their roles for survival.
However, now as the world turns towards recovery, workers in privileged positions who don’t primarily depend on paycheck to paycheck are finally moving on. It is noticed that non-developed nations with the absence of social security and unemployment benefits cannot afford this luxury. But they still undergo duress and pent-up frustration from the disruption caused by the pandemic.
According to a survey by Quess in 2021, the 'Great Resignation' is an unending talent surge that has broken the demand-supply equilibrium, compelling organizations to focus on both talent acquisition and retention at the same time.
A shift to work-from-home culture, desire to move into a more suitable profession and long-term goals fueled this whole new trend. Remote working has made it possible for corporates and employees to have flexible work models. Hence, many employers started offering better benefits and higher salaries to employees, leading employees to re-evaluate their options.
Here’s where the fuel for startup platforms like AiDOOS comes from. AiDOOS is an online platform that bridges the gap between the IT needs of organizations and talents seeking work opportunities.
