Recruiters continue to face challenges throughout 2021, and may face another significant blow between now and December. In late September, 1,250 currently employed U.S. adults were surveyed.

According to the Resume Builder Survey, 1 in 7 workers are planning to resign before the new year. 15% of them indicated they intend to resign between September and December 2021. An additional 22% are undecided, meaning even more employee turnover is possible later this year or in early 2022. This is on top of the 4.3 million people that quit their jobs in August, the highest on record since the Labor Department has been recording the statistic.

Make A Plan Now To Reduce The Probability Of Resignations

The survey indicates that better pay, benefits, and remote work options are among the leading reasons that an employer can control that may allow you to retain workers. The way that the United States works is shifting. Competition for workers is at an all-time high.

If you have the ability to offer more work flexibility, there is a compelling reason to offer it. The act of returning to in-person work seems to be the motivation to quit for 64% of business and finance workers.
