Workers heading out the door – and employers don’t know why

December 5, 2021

Sixty-five per cent of workers globally are seriously considering leaving their role — up from 49 per cent in 2020.

And many employers seem to be in the dark about it, according to a report from Hays Canada.

More than three in five (62 per cent) workers cite the lack of career growth opportunities in their current company as their reason to leave. However, only 41 per cent of employers recognize this, and just 36 per cent are providing ongoing training.

Also, 38 per cent of employees are looking for better compensation. And while 40 per cent of employers recognize this, only 23 per cent are offering pay raises.

Fifty per cent of employees think they are underpaid and 18 per cent would consider quitting their job if they don’t get a raise by year’s end, according to a separate report from Robert Half.
