Back to Office Plans Will Power a Wave of Resignations

Zeta projects 51% of employees are likely to search for a new job within the next 12 months as a result of their current employers’ back to office plan. 

This projection is based on an extensive survey that polled employed workers from across the United States.

Only 23% of respondents want to return to the office full time—most prefer a hybrid (41%) or remote-only (36%) working arrangement.

What’s powering this movement?

Two things…

Work-life balance and safety.

33% of respondents say they will look for a new job if forced to return to the office full time, because they prefer the work-life balance of working from home.

32% of respondents say personal safety is their biggest concern with returning to the office full time, which is why they’re preparing to look for a new employer. 

Employers and employees not aligned 

Only 25% of employees want to return to the office full time. 

However, 45% of respondents say their employers are requiring them to return full time.

Employees opinions of employers are changing

31% of respondents said that their employer’s return to office plans are changing their opinion of the company.
