Over the course of their professional lives, young workers are expected to change jobs about 6 times on average. That’s twice as often as older generations. What’s driving these turnovers?
The truth is that work is changing. Companies that don’t adapt to change have dissatisfied workers. In tight labor markets (like the current one), it’s easy for workers to quit their jobs and find another one. 32% of knowledge workers have quit their jobs because they weren’t allowed to work remotely. Meanwhile, over 90% of workers are happy at work where they have flexible hours and the option to work remotely.
Why is remote work so important? What began as an emergency adaptation to the pandemic has become a desirable feature of many jobs. Working from home gives workers more time for family, improved savings, and higher morale. Technology makes remote jobs possible, and creative workers benefit the most presently.
