Multiple studies have covered a ‘Great Resignation’ phenomenon as a result of the global pandemic. Workers supposedly discovered how much they ‘disliked’ their jobs, and have been resigning in droves.

However, much of this coverage can be heavily skewed towards broad global sentiment. Is this phenomenon a reality in South East Asia (SEA)?

How likely are professionals thinking of quitting their jobs? Are they really submitting their resignation letters? This report provides a reality check and unpacks the ‘Great Resignation’ wave in SEA.
