June 9, 2024

According to a new survey by The Conference Board, workers who quit their jobs during the Great Resignation are significantly less satisfied than their colleagues who stayed. Their overall job satisfaction is down 5.6 percentage points.

Leadership and culture were the greatest gaps in satisfaction between the job switchers and job stayers. Those who resigned during the COVID-19 pandemic are also unhappy with communications, interest in their work, co-workers and job security.

Meanwhile, job satisfaction among all employees remained virtually unchanged, up 0.4 percentage points to 62.7%, but every individual driver of job satisfaction declined. See more survey findings.
