Deloitte Report Reveals Most Women Want To Leave Their Current Job Due To Work Stress, Burnout
You know, when I was a kid, I used to think that most adults love their jobs. And then I grew up and I realised that they hate their jobs and they probably need therapy or a long vacation because they are stressed. However, all the working women need both options because they have to work twice as much as their male counterparts and still face discrimination at work which is really sad. Recently, a Deloitte report revealed that most women are unhappy with their current employer and want to leave their job due to a lack of flexible work, burnout, and stress. We totally understand their situation!
Deloitte Global conducted a survey and the result is pretty shocking but not surprising at all. Nearly 5000 women from 10 countries took part in this survey which was conducted between November 2021 and February 2022. In the report titled ‘Women@Work 2022: A Global Outlook’, 56% of women admitted their stress level has increased since last year and 50% of women said that they are experiencing burnout. Due to stress and burnout, nearly 40% of women are searching for a new job as they are unhappy with their current employer. Nearly 50% o women want to leave their job in the next two years, as per the report. However, 9% of them plan to work for the same company for more than five years.

According to the reports, the survey was conducted to understand the impact of the global pandemic on the personal and professional lives of working women. The report also helped in understanding the state of gender equality in the workplace and the measures taken by the company to support and empower its female employees and the result is clearly quite disappointing.
