65% of Younger Workers Plan to Quit This Year

They're seeking a sense of purpose over better pay.

Adults born after 1997 comprise the youngest segment of the workforce, dubbed “Generation Z.”

And they might also be the least satisfied with their current employment.

According to a new report, Gen Z workers are highly likely to quit their jobs in 2022.

Talent acquisition firm Lever says 65% of Gen Zers surveyed admit they plan to leave their jobs this year.

This compares to 40% of the surveyed workforce overall.

The report says 42% of Gen Z workers value a company that gives them a sense of purpose, which they rank higher than better pay.

Business Insider says, “Gen Z has had no qualms about quitting their crappy jobs in favor of a better one.”
