Office workers are beginning to feel the pain of Great resignationas increased workload and stress from repetitive tasks led up to 70% of employees to consider leaving their jobs over the next six months.

This is according to the company for enterprise automation software UiPath Survey of office workers in 2022which gathered 5,000 responses from office workers in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, India, Australia and Singapore.

The so-called Big Resignation shows no signs of slowing down, with a record 4.5 million American workers leaving their jobs in November 2021 alone, according to The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Now 70% of respondents say they are considering following suit in the next six months.

This made other colleagues feel more pressure at work, with 83% of respondents taking up to six new tasks outside their job descriptions due to leaving colleagues. As a result, 68% of respondents say they no longer know what their responsibilities are.

“Very few people leave just because of the salary. It’s usually more about working conditions, “Jack Gold, president and chief analyst at J. Gold Associates, told Computerworld earlier this year.

Monotony also has a negative impact on the well-being of employees, with many respondents noting frustrated that they have to perform what they consider to be day-to-day or administrative tasks. These frustrating tasks include answering emails (42%), scheduling calls and meetings (35%) and entering data (34%). Worldwide, 94% of respondents say they feel exhausted at the end of the workday at least once a week.
