To better understand the reasons for increasing quit rates and turnover and why so many jobs remain unfilled, consider the findings of surveys conducted during the pandemic. A Mercer Marsh Benefits Health on Demand survey of more than 14,000 workers in 2021 found both positive and negative impacts from the pandemic, and a clear majority of respondents said they value support from their employer. Nearly 62% of employees who felt supported by their employer during the pandemic believe their employer cares about their health and well-being. By comparison, only 19% of those employees who said they had poor support felt their employer cares. Of those employees who felt supported, 44% said they were less likely to leave their job.
