Microsoft’s Work Trend Index survey of more than 30,000 global workers discovered that 41% of employees were considering leaving their roles or changing professions this year. Additionally, a study from Personio of workers in the UK and Ireland uncovered that 38% of those surveyed planned to move on in the next six months to a year.
