According to research undertaken by Barnett Waddingham, 2021 saw a record number of workers voluntarily quit their jobs, in what has been dubbed the ‘Great Resignation’.
85 per cent of senior decision-makers in the UK claimed they had been impacted and that this had had a negative influence on employee wellbeing. In some instances, the situation has created a feeling of team burnout due to excessive employee responsibilities as well as businesses’ capacity to retain employees.
As a result, many companies are focusing on retention as a major driver in their organisation for the rest of 2022 and beyond.
Many employees (59 per cent) claimed that their decision to resign was directly influenced by their company’s absence of hybrid working. Therefore, 84 per cent of organisations have adopted a hybrid working model to reduce employee dissatisfaction, according to the study.
Another area of interest was the well-established link between employee happiness and productivity.
Employee well-being is the number one challenge for HR this year, according to 41% of organisations and remains a top focus when it comes to retaining and hiring employees.
