Survey: More Money Tops Reasons Why People Quit

Posted Tuesday, August 7, 2018 6:25 am

Ever wonder why workers quit their jobs?  An OfficeTeam survey reveals the number one reason people quit their jobs – by a large margin – is money.  2,815 workers were asked, “Thinking of your current job, what is the most likely reason you would quit?”  44% indicated that more money was the primary motivator for resigning.  Three reasons were tied for the second most popular response, at 12% each: being unchallenged at work, feeling unappreciated, and longing for a company with a higher purpose or stronger mission.  A summary of all the responses are indicated in the chart below.

Members of Hawaii Employers Council who are interested in learning whether their compensation program remains competitive in this tight labor market may contact Cathy Keaulani, Manager, Surveys & Compensation Services.
