Job Mobility Declines Amidst the Pandemic

After several years of consistent increases, a sudden drop in the willingness for millennials to leave their job has spawned from the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2019, 49% of millennials were willing to leave their job in two years or less, but that number has now dropped to 31%. This shows how millennials, who are typically in a fragile financial state, are more cautious about their cash flows. Consistency is key.

On top of this statistic, 60% of millennials interviewed said they’d like the option of working remotely rather than moving for a job. Over half of those that responded said if they could work from home they’d chose to love outside of major cities, where the cost of living is less. Gen Zers were still the most willing group to relocate.
