This summary is provided by the IPR Organizational Communication Research Center based on the original study by Leger

Leger explored employee satisfaction, quality of life, and reasons for switching roles.

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”).
