I think what we are seeing, and I’ve talked about before, is this:
“Tip #5: If improving your current job doesn’t work, make some big decisions.
Make some executive decisions. If making a better match doesn’t work, it might be a sign to look for another role someplace else or consider if now’s a good time to go back to school.”
I do believe a lot of people are burned out, not just from work, but from everything else going on in the world, on top of work. Then they look at their workplace and ask a simple question, does this job make burnout better, or worse, and if it’s worse, what are my options for changing that.
Not continuing to work in that place, is one option that many are opting for.
Can we blame them?
