Take this job and shove it — even if it pays more.
That’s what millions of burned-out American workers are saying despite good times for the economy, historically low unemployment rates and rising pay.
Many workers are fed up and stressed, new studies found. They are burnt out.
“Eighty percent of the US workforce reports feeling stressed because of ineffective company communication, a 30 percent jump from just one year ago,” according to the new Dynamic Signal study.
About two-thirds of those surveyed said that they are ready to quit. The survey also found some 70 percent feel overwhelmed because of broken communication methods and fragmented information.
The problem is getting worse, says Dynamic Signal, an employee communications firm.
High worker turnover has a huge price, the study noted, estimating it costs on average $24,000 to replace a worker.
Employment agency Robert Half finds the same problems, especially among younger workers.
“We are seeing that workers are simply burned out,” says Ted Collins, branch manager for Robert Half in Midtown, citing that company’s recent study.
He added that on a scale of 1 to 10 for feeling burnt out, the average score was 5.6. Younger workers, the study said, have a burnout rating of 6.2.
“The top reasons were career stagnation, constant interruptions and fires to put out,” he said. Other reasons included low pay and stressful conditions.
