An online survey of 3,008 employees in Canada was conducted Nov. 15 – Dec. 1, 2021.
Key findings include:
- 51% of employees aged 35-54 who were dissatisfied with their quality of life were likely to look for a new work opportunity in the next two years, compared to 29% of employees aged 55+.
- 60% of employees aged 18-34 said they are “likely to make a change that would take them away from their current employer” regardless of their quality of life.
- Participants said that the top drivers of overall quality of life are mental health and personal relationships.
- Of the employees looking for a new job opportunity, 29% are leaving for reasons related to career growth/relevance (i.e., “opportunities for career advancement/promotion”).
