A new survey commissioned by Lattice shows that more than half of American employees are looking to change jobs in favor of more meaningful work and see a clear path forward in their careers.
SAN FRANCISCO, August 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Today, Lattice, a leading software platform used by more than 3,000 companies to help manage and motivate employees, released the results of a new employee survey. Simply put, while employees still grapple with the pivotal and burnout resulting from the many changes affecting the world of work since the start of 2020, this is not their primary motivation for leaving their current jobs. “Employees want to understand how they impact the big picture and what they can do to successfully achieve their career goals,” said Jack altman, CEO of Lattice.
Employees want to understand their impact on the bigger picture and what they can do to achieve their career goals.
Among the highlights of the survey: 54% of ALL employees surveyed say they are looking to change jobs, and 43% of employees say their career path has either stalled or slowed since the start of 2020. Therefore, employees want to know exactly what their career path will look like in the future, with 47% of respondents saying they are currently looking for a new job that offers clarity and opportunities for growth.
“People are a company’s most important asset and the cost of turnover is high. Managers should prioritize visibility of employees over their career progression, as well as providing mentorship and tools to help them move forward, to ensure they retain their top talent, ”said the CEO of Lattice, Jack altman.
The survey found that job search is not only widespread, but an immediate priority, with 17% of respondents looking to take on a new job as soon as possible. There are currently over 127 million full-time employees in United States which equates to 21 million people currently exploring opportunities. That’s roughly 13 cities the size of the population of Manhattan all are looking to change jobs. This unprecedented change began in May when more than 3.6 million people left their jobs, officially becoming “The Great Resignation”.
The survey also looked at why employees felt their careers were at a standstill. Here are some highlights: 24% of those surveyed said a lack of mentoring, 21% said a lack of clarity about a career path and the tools to track and achieve it, and 16% said a decrease in meetings one-on-one / one-on-one with their supervisors was one of the main reasons they felt their careers stagnated.
Younger Americans are by far the most likely to change careers due to blocked careers. 38% of Gen Z workers said they are looking for jobs with greater transparency about job flow and development, and 26% of Millennials are looking for a new job, which is more than three times that of baby boomers.
