Voluntary quits are still high up in numbers even after a year into the Great Resignation. BLS recorded 4.4 million quits this February 2022.
The major cause for this employee quitting pattern, studies find, is burnout. Employees were already experiencing it before, only to be accelerated in the pandemic.
What Is the Major Reason Your Employees Quit?
Some of the causes of burnout were cited as people becoming overworked trying to manage home and the office during and post-lockdowns, overwhelming childcare duties, added responsibility in the office due to worker shortage, etc.
