The great resignation: the reasons for leaving your job
The health emergency that has entirely involved our planet has definitely had an important impact on the world of work as well. Many of the workers have conducted a profound reflection on both the priorities and the objectives to be achieved in the workplace, with a greater emphasis on what the expectations and future prospects may be, considering well-being, safety and involvement.
Most of the workers found themselves not only adapting to a new lifestyle but above all radically changing the way they work, moving from the office to home working. Changes that have led most of the employees to important reflections regarding the climate in the workplace, the possibilities for growth but, above all, the importance of time.
Many have requested resignations from their jobs by opting for a lower number of working hours or by favoring freelance work, as the health emergency has shifted the priorities of the individual worker. In the course of the next few paragraphs, we will see better what were the reasons that led a large number of employees to request resignations by resigning from their company.
Regaining possession of time
One of the main reasons for leaving your job is the re-appropriation of one's free time. It is no coincidence, in fact, that after the lockdown and the Smart Working imposed due to the restrictions, many of the workers today are looking for job offers that allow them to carry out their work remotely. And precisely in 2022, remote announcements increased exponentially, indicating how time has become a fundamental element in choosing a job.
Aim for a career
Another reason for resigning is the career, an aspect that particularly interests specialized profiles or graduates who want to invest their time and experience to achieve professional results at a certain level. Career is a key prospect for younger workers who prefer to work in companies that provide stimulating environments and that foresee growth prospects.
Give up for the family
A large number of resignations is linked to the difficulty of reconciling work commitments with family life. In this circumstance it would not be a question of resignation linked to a further job search but to the renunciation of employment. Unfortunately, this phenomenon affects to a greater extent women forced to renounce working independence and sacrifice themselves for the family.
The renunciation of one's job could be dictated by a toxic environment in a company, starting from the relationship with colleagues of the same or higher level or even to the approach with the bosses of the company. Continuous clashes, excessive pressure, lack of communication, lack of transparency or lack of recognition of their skills are all elements that could push an employee to leave work.
Corporate values also seem to be valid reasons for being able to leave one's permanent job regardless of the role assumed in the company. There are many employees who would no longer be willing to compromise between personal priority values and those of the company they work for. Consequently abandoning the companies they work for, and choosing one aligned with their ideals.
There is also the choice to resign dictated by the desire to give a cut to the daily working life to open up to new challenges and stimuli. In this way, your working life is completely upset, to test yourself and enrich your career path.
A compromised company climate could be a fundamental factor in deciding to interrupt a career path in the company. Starting from the experience of the lockdown, the loss of relationships in the workplace has highlighted the importance of a work environment that must guarantee employees a company climate that is welcoming as well as being positive and stimulating, thus promoting collaboration and positivity. among colleagues to increase and improve productivity.
