What factor is correlated most with Americans wanting to stay at their current job? What share of US workers want to stay where they are? How has the pandemic affected people's views on work?
The researchers found that meaning is the factor most strongly correlated with people wanting to stay at their job—ahead of growth, belonging, daily experience, and compensation.
Some 70% of workers surveyed say they've been more focused on work that has a sense of meaning and purpose since the pandemic, 74% say they've thought more about what really matters in life, and 73% say they've re-evaluated many of their choices and how they spend their time.
Gen Z and millennial workers are more likely than Gen X and boomer workers to say they view work differently since the pandemic.
Among the workers surveyed, some 23% are energized by their job, 32% are unfulfilled, 30% are checked out, and 15% are fed up.
About the research: The report was based on data from a survey conducted in August 2023 among a nationally representative sample of 1,252 workers in the United States.
