73% of workers are planning to change jobs in the next 2-3 years

Dec 20, 2021 Insight Talent


It certainly seems like things have been in a constant state of flux ever since 2020, hasn't it?

The pandemic led to the explosion of remote work, which led to remote job opportunities and talent competition. Ultimately, this led to the Great Resignation.

As LinkedIn CEO, Ryan Roslansky writes, "The world is entering into a talent migration that's bigger than anything we've seen before." How big?

Emilie Shumway, associate editor for CIO Dive, reports that according to a recent Boston Consulting Group (BCB) survey of almost 10,000 digital workers:

73% of workers are planning to change jobs in the next 2-3 years

And most alarming of all:

40% of workers are actively looking for a new job right now

Knowing that you will experience significant staff turnover in the next 2-3 years, do you have a strategy and plan for:

  • Offboarding employees efficiently
  • Transitioning all their responsibilities to other employees successfully in 2 weeks or less
  • Onboarding new-hires quickly so they can hit the ground running
  • And, minimizing disruptions to your existing staff and your customers

It all begins with a solid foundation (strategy, plans, systems, etc.) that works to ensure business continuity. If you don't have anything in place, it's time to start thinking about a workflow management system as the first step to your business continuity strategy.
