Recruiters already know that employees are moving like never before. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Job Openings and Labor Turnover Summary, 4.5 million American workers quit or changed their jobs in November 2021. The stat represents the highest number ever recorded in one month with most of the resignations being submitted in the hotel and hospitality industry.
“Observers have credited several factors for all the turnover we’re seeing, from paltry wages and benefits being offered to fear of contracting COVID-19 and complications associated with infections,” said Ian O. Williamson, Dean of the University of California of Irvine’s Paul Merage School of Business.. “Being successful in many service-based jobs requires generalizable occupational skills such as competencies in communications and computing. Because these talents are easily transportable across companies in a wide range of professions, it’s relatively easy for employees to move between companies and maintain their productivity in service-based economies.”
