The Great Resignation is changing. In fact, the more it’s analyzed, the worse it gets. Piling on the stat from August that 51% of all employees were seeking a new job, a new LinkedIn survey shows that job changes among women in its network have jumped 54% compared with a year ago, a record. Men’s career transitions have increased about 46%. It’s also being accepted by what could be termed the “traditional” establishment.

These aren’t just hotshot social scientists or academics that are tracking “the great quit.” When hedge fund legend and billionaire Ray Dalio admits that work will never be the same, as he did last week, it might be time to take this phenomenon seriously instead of seeing it as a COVID-driven passing phase.
