Over half of US postsecondary workers want to leave: Survey

According to a new survey from the US-based College University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR), over half of the 3,814 postsecondary employees surveyed are looking to work elsewhere next year. The number has increased by 14% since last year. According to the survey, employees are primarily seeking increased pay, though many cited remote work, flexible work schedules, and promotion as their reasons. Many surveyed employees cited burnout as an issue, with two-thirds stating that they are working more than full time at their institutions and that their duties have increased with the pandemic. The report authors recommend that institutions provide salary increases, offer more remote work options and flexible schedules, and invest in employee career development to improve retention.
