According to a new report from McKinsey and Co, approximately 40% of employees in the US are considering quitting their current roles over the next 3-to-6 months. McKinsey and Co surveyed over 6,000 US employees between February and April.

“This isn’t just a passing trend or a pandemic-related change to the labour market,” commented Bonnie Dowling, one of the report’s authors.

“There’s been a fundamental shift in workers’ mentality, and their willingness to prioritise other things in their life beyond whatever job they hold […] We’re never going back to how things were in 2019.” 

As well as speaking to employees in the US, McKinsey and Co also spoke to people in Australia, Canada, Singapore, India, and the UK.

Respondents across the six countries showed a consistently high desire for work that is better paying, more satisfying, or both, as well as a conviction that they can find better jobs elsewhere,” the report said.

“To navigate this new playing field successfully, hiring managers can look beyond the current imbalance in labour supply and demand and consider what different segments of workers want and how best to engage them.”
