CIPD Good Work Index dives into the ‘great resignation’

21 June 2022

With the ‘great resignation’ or the ‘great rethink’ being a hot topic around staff retention and employee wellbeing, it is helpful to have some quantifiable data. The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has published the Good Work Index 2022 which explores the results of a UK workers survey.

Here are some of the key takeaways from the executive report:

•    7% of workers surveyed had left their jobs in the previous 6 months, up from 6% in previous years
•    20% of workers felt it was likely they would quit their job in the next 12 months, up from 16% in 2021
•    Responses stating it was unlikely they would quit in the next 12 months returned to 2020 levels, 2021 likely reflected the reluctance to move    during the pandemic
•    34% of workers think that it would be easy to find a job as good as their current role
•    43% would find it difficult to find a job as good as their current role, this is down from 62% in 2020 and 53% in 2021
•    Better pay and benefits was the biggest reason cited for having left a role (35%) or for looking to leave (27%)
•    Presenteeism, working despite not feeling well enough, has risen from 35% in 2021 to 46% in 2022.
