Are you tired of your work yet?

Maybe you’re bored annoying co-worker or yours toxic boss is pushing you up the wall, or maybe you are simply exhausted from hours and not appreciated enough?

Well, according to new research, you’re not alone.

A new survey by job site CV-Library shows that most workers plan to look for different jobs in the new year.

Of the 2,000 employees surveyed, three-quarters are considering submitting their notices by 2022 – while nearly the same number plan to retrain or upskill their skills.

This is very much a repeat of a current phenomenon taking place in the world of work, called ‘The Great Resignation’ – AKA, the wave of people leaving their jobs to find new opportunities.

People have left their jobs after the pandemic so – if this new study is anything to go on – it’s something we could see more of in the coming months and well into 2022.

According to the study, the employees who are giving reasons for leaving are wanting a general career change as well as higher pay and more flexible working arrangements. Many also revealed that they had delayed making a decision because of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, a third of respondents admitted they simply felt ‘burnt out’ and half said they knew someone who had resigned this year – which certainly prompted them to rate own situation.

Lee Biggins, chief executive of CV-Library, said: ‘The combination of slowly building confidence in the UK economy and the pandemic has triggered people to reassess their lives and find earn more happiness, money and flexibility created a perfect storm on the job market.

‘The good news is that employers can take action to prevent an increase in headcount.’

Lee says employers should offer better wages and invest in training and upskilling, as well as providing more remote work opportunities – to retain employees.

News comes like The ‘perfect job’ was found to work 21-30 hours a week, salary £44,355 and commute 17 minutes – according to a new study.
