1 in 5 workers looking for new job

July 8, 2021

More than one in five (21 per cent) of Canadian workers plan to look for a new role in the next several months, according to a report from Robert Half.

Why? People cite low morale and burnout (35 per cent) and the desire to have more opportunities to grow and develop their skills (23 per cent) as top reasons.

This is the case even though workers feel confident about their current skill set (80 percent) and job security (79 per cent).

“With restrictions associated with the third wave of the pandemic gradually easing across Canada and business activity poised to resume, professionals are beginning to gain more confidence in the labour market,” says David King, Canadian senior district president of Robert Half. “With re-opening and future of work strategies top of mind for many employers, organizations need to consider the needs of their current workforce and how new and improved policies may impact turnover and recruitment.”
