The ‘Great Resignation’ is now the ‘Great Regret’: 80% of job hoppers wish they hadn’t quit their old roles

At the time, it seemed like such a smart idea. However, many people who gave their

notice during the 'Great Resignation' of 2021 have seen little reward from the disruption.

In a study now known as the "Great Regret," payroll and HR professionals Paychex discovered that 80% of workers

who left their jobs in search of better opportunities afterwards regretted their decision.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of people departing during the pandemic reached historic highs,

with 4.5 million people quitting in November 2021 and more than 11 million job opportunities the following month.

Of course, not everyone who left their positions did so as a result of the "Great Resignation,"

since many people were forced to leave due to pandemic-related circumstances.

However, the vast majority of individuals who did leave the company for better compensation and

work-life balance acknowledged that they still yearn for their previous positions.
