Survey shows people would rather quit than go back to work

Posted at 7:12 AM, Jan 08, 2021

As the COVID-19 vaccine rolls out companies are making plans to return to work but that's not sitting well with everyone.

29% of people surveyed by Live Career say they would rather quit than return to the workplace.

More than 60% want to continue working from home after the pandemic.

Experts at Gartner HR Practice say companies are aware many people will want to continue working remotely, but companies can still make it mandatory to come into the office.

If you're not comfortable returning to work, talk to your manager and be transparent about why you're hesitant, especially if it's a health issue.

If you can prove you're capable of being productive while working from home, it will help.
