Phenomenon Great Retirement or Great Retirement This is an issue that began to gain media attention in late 2021. At the time, the U.S. Employment Service released data detailing that more 15 million American workers have quit. to their jobs from April of the same year. An increase of 4.3 million over previous periods.
In recent weeks, this circumstance has become more visible in other countries, including Spain. According to the latest data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE) for the fourth quarter of 2021, in our country 109,085 unfilled vacancies. These jobs are distributed as follows: 95,556 are in the service sector, 7,223 are related to industry and 6,307 are related to construction.
In this sense, officials from the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy and public figures met on Monday to resolve this issue. Both parties agreed to point out that There is no such thing as “a big problem to quit smoking or quit smoking”. in Spain and much less comparable to what is happening in the US. “This is not to say that there is a mass layoff of workers from their jobs in Spain,” said Secretary of State for Employment Joaquín Pérez Rey.
Similarly, Rey clarified that this phenomenon affects certain sectors such as hotel industry and this concentrated in some areas such as Madrid, Catalonia, the Valencian Community and Andalusia. In addition, the secretary clarified motives for those who in some areas of activity, for example, in the hotel business, do not solve their problems: “They must do that you don’t pay enoughthere are no breaks, the days are exhausting, the workers cannot combine personal and work life.”
Despite this data, they wanted to exclude from Labor that this is a general disadvantage, because he barely has 4% of the total number of vacancies. In national terms, the share of unfilled vacancies in our territory it’s only 0.7%compared to an average of 2.5% in Europe or 3.8% in Germany.
resignations are on the rise
Added to this “problem” of filling jobs is the phenomenon resignations. According to social security statistics, in April Spain reached its highest rate since registration began (2001). During this month 5467 people They decided to voluntarily leave their jobs. By themselves, these figures do not yet cause concern to the ministry, but if we take into account the trend, then these data are beginning to be treated with more attention.
To find the previous entry, you need to go back to September 2007, a few months before the start of the economic crisis. Hataka believes the figure was as high as 4,762 employees at the time. According to media reports, the number of layoffs has increased markedly over the past year, although this phenomenon especially bright in recent months. If in 2021 the average was below 3,000 cases, then the number of layoffs this year began with data above this number and chains. six-month rise. In January it was 3275, in February 3540, and in March it again exceeded 4000 (specifically it was 4006).
It remains to be seen what the motives are behind this decision. So far, data from a McKinsey & Company study of US company statistics has revealed the reasons why professionals leave their jobs. Most of them own motivated reasons due to changing criteria life perspective. In addition, the younger generation will make this decision taking into account your personal developmentnot financial incentives.
