Health is critically linked to job satisfaction, says a survey conducted by Quest Diagnostics in March 2022. The study, “2022 Health at Work,” has revealed that 66% of employees are thinking of changing jobs next year—or have recently completed a job change. In addition, 77% of respondents state that preventive care was difficult during the pandemic.

With that in mind, 73% of human resources executives surveyed are concerned about employees’ chronic conditions and 90% believe they will need to improve benefit packages and increase wages to compete for the best workers and retain current employees during the Great Resignation.

Better benefits in general (38%), better health care benefits specifically (36%), as well as work/life balance (36%) were three of the top four reasons employees consider moving to a different company. Salary increase was the top reason (50%).
