Yes, it is true. Many employees are unfulfilled. Their engagement wains and they find themselves feeling tired and longing for some relief. Employees are trying to find ways to work in their “why”. What does that mean; it means that salary, benefits, development, and career growth is important. However, the desire for work to be meaningful and to have a balance is very important as well. The idea of more, more, more has taken on another perspective.
The more that employees desire now is time with family and friends. The more looks like more travel and time to explore. More looks like spending time in their hobbies or finding new ones. The pandemic has changed a lot of people and I believe the need to be able to gather with friends and be present became the luxury item everyone had to have. Perspective. Careers were now being placed in perspective.
The knowledge that, time is so precious, has caused employees to seek a career that will get them out of bed in the morning. They are coming out of their comfort zone, and looking to transition in to new careers that will provide their “why” or simply work for a different employer that aligns with their values. Some, will start their own business or develop a side hustle that will get them closer to their “why”.
