The “Great Resignation,” also called the “Great Reshuffle,” is showing that not following through could send employees walking out the door. Millions of Americans have quit their jobs over the past year, including a record 4.5 million in March alone.

Many attribute their decision to being burned out. Some 89% of those who either recently left their job or were planning to do so said they felt burned out and unsupported, a survey by education tech firm Cengage found. The survey, conducted in November 2021, polled 1,200 U.S. adults age 25 and older who either quit in the last six months or said they plan to quit in the next six months.
