Responding to job hunting among higher ed employees
Employee retention has become an institutional priority as the Great Resignation takes root in higher education.
This report provides data and insights to inform institutional strategy development. Specifically, it quantifies potential turnover among the full-time higher education workforce in 2022 and relates this to employment satisfaction along various job dimensions. It then discusses implications for initiatives focused on employee retention.
A sample of 1,327 faculty, staff, and administrators employed full time by a public or private nonprofit college or university were surveyed online between March 1 and April 11, 2022. Responses were weighted to be representative of the full-time higher education workforce.
This is the first report in a series. Read the second report: High inflation and depressed stock markets: Retirement readiness among the higher education workforce
