The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 4.2 million Americans quit their jobs in 2022. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. The resignations are on trend with the 48 million workers who quit their jobs the previous year in 2021.
Anthony Klotz, the Man with the Plan
Predicted by Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior Anthony Klotz of Texas A&M, he dubbed the trend-turned-movement as “The Great Resignation” during an interview for Bloomberg News in May 2021.
Before he entered post-secondary education, Klotz was with Fortune 500 for over a decade where he developed a passion for studying the psychology of management.
It was during and after the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 that Klotz zeroed in on four key trends he predicted would spur an epic employment exodus.
Also referred to as “The Big Quit” or “The Great Reshuffle,” Klotz stunned economists around the world with the accuracy of his theory.
The topic of quitting is never far from my mind. I noticed four trends unique to the pandemic that I believed would each independently contribute to higher-than-normal levels of resignations in the United States, and that would lead to a massive wave of resignations when combined.
Data from the Bureau and Pew Research confirms “these are some of the highest quit rates the U.S. has seen” since the 1970s. Though the trend is call for concern, it isn’t all gloom and doom.
There’s a silver lining that favors job seekers.
The skewed balance of seekers to employment opportunities has empowered today’s job hunters. Major corporations like Target advanced wages and benefits in spring 2022 to retain and attract employees.
Likewise, Pew Research between Apr. 2021 and Mar. 2022 confirmed 60% of employees who accepted new employment saw an increase in earnings when compared to the same month in the previous year.
Corporations Clamor for Talent
Despite a 6.6% drop in hiring opportunities between May 2022 and Jun. 2022 reported by the Bureau—the most significant decline since Apr. 2020—researchers from Indeed’s Hiring Lab contend “employers are still clamoring for talent."
Sign-on bonuses in Indeed job postings have more than tripled since 2019, and 11.2 million openings are trends job seekers can feel good about.
