A mass employee exodus is coming to Cebu in the near future, according to a recent Mynimo survey.
Of the 4,500 workers across 58 sectors who responded to the survey, 42 percent or 1,890 workers indicated that are planning to quit soon.
The survey also revealed that jobs facing high quit rates are in business process management, specifically call center agents. Jobs in accounting, finance, marketing, retail, administrative and clerical professions are also at risk.
As to why the workers intend to resign, the most cited reason was the lack of company benefits. Stagnation in career growth, low salaries, and lack of work-life balance have also pushed them to leave their jobs.
To ensure employee retention, Mynimo CEO Wesley Chiongbian recommends addressing the individual concerns of employees and refrain from a one-size-fits-all approach.
For those who have proven themselves to be just as productive or even more than when they were at the office, Chionbian also recommends that companies should let these employees continue working via a work-from-home setup.
Largely driven by the pandemic, more and more professionals are opting for remote working arrangements.
