Medium recently published insight from Constance Hadley, Lecturer of Management & Organizations, on her analysis of the ‘Great Rethinking’ and what is influencing employees to actively seek new jobs.
A recent study revealed that 55% of hybrid employees and 50% of all-remote employees reported feeling lonelier at work than before the pandemic, due to the feelings of being disconnected and burned out.
