Majority of Professionals Believe Employee Turnover will Increase in 2022, says Korn Ferry Survey


Filling open positions will continue to be a challenge in 2022 as turnover will likely increase, it's what global organizational consulting firm Korn Ferry concludes from their survey with 1,128 professionals developed in mid-September 2021.

More than half of respondents (63%) say the pandemic has made it more difficult to fill open positions and that they (55%) expect employee turnover to increase in 2022, with 43% of people finding that the labor shortage is having a negative impact on their company's operations. 

Nearly half of these professionals (45%) say it is hard to fill positions now because they can't find qualified talent/skills. While finding new talent is so difficult, retaining them is also a challenge. The top reason employees are leaving is that they are re-evaluating their priorities amid the pandemic (30%), followed by a lack of a clear advancement path (24%) and better pay and benefits (23%). 

About 20% of respondents said the top way their company is addressing the labor and skill shortage is by relying heavily on contingent/gig workers.
