The Great Resignation Looks Set to Continue — 1 in 5 Say They’ll Change Jobs in the Next Year

The Great Resignation is set to continue, according to a new global survey by PwC, with one in five saying they are likely to switch jobs in the next 12 months.

PwC launched its “Global Workforce Hopes and Fears Survey 2022” at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday, which surveyed more than 52,000 workers in 44 countries.

Some 35% of respondents are planning to ask their employers for more money in the next 12 months.
