According to research by WorkL, 28 percent of employees are considering resigning from their current role this month.
This is up 2 percent from last month.
The current ‘Flight Risk’ means that over a quarter of the survey respondents are at risk of leaving their job.
Clearly, the tide of the Great Resignation shows no sign of curbing.
Which industry is most at risk?
Looking at the Flight Risk by industry shows that those working in Hospitality are most likely to be a Flight Risk with a high score of 39 percent risk.
This is followed by the Telecommunications and Publishing, 36 percent and Wholesale at 34 percent.
The data also highlights this month’s Well-Being Risk which is currently at 33 percent.
This means that a third of employees are falling below average with their Well-Being score in the survey.
The higher the number, the larger the percentage of employees with low well-being, the higher the risk.
A percentage score of 0 percent indicates no employees with low Well-Being scores.
These results are a useful indicator for employers to monitor employees with the aim to improve employee retention rates and ensure that their teams are happy and engaged.
Happiness leads to productivity
Research shows that happy and engaged employees drive 20 percent improvement in profits, productivity and reduce employees’ sick absence and staff turnover.
Individuals who feel they have more control over their working life, well-being and environment will take more responsibility for the success of their employer.
“[T]he more engaged and happier your employees are the greater your commercial success will be,” says Founder of WorkL for Business, Lord Mark Price.
