The jobs are coming back — but the workers are not
Roughly half of workers recently surveyed said they would turn down a job offer that mandated full-time in-office work.
“When you’re talking to job seekers or employees, there’s a lot more expectation from employees that they’ll be able to continue to work remotely — I’m hearing a lot less of that from employers,” said Andrew Challenger, senior vice president at the executive outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
For the 2nd month in a row, the labor market has seen a record number of open jobs — and with a record-high 2.7% quit rate, it’s an indication that workers are ready to walk rather than remain in a job they dislike. https://t.co/VYcvu2KwYQ
