A recent report from HR software provider UKG found that workplace stress and burnout remain high among employees nationally—especially among the C-suite. 

According to the report, a whopping 40% of C-suite executives said they would leave their job within the next year, citing intense stress from their job.  

Another 33% of respondents claim they “don’t want to work at all anymore” and almost half said they would not recommend their company or profession to a young person they care about.  

Even more incredible, 38% of leaders would not wish their job on their worst enemy.  

In an interview with EBN, VP of Human Insights at UKG Jarik Conrad said, “This is the ideal time for companies to double down on their investment in leadership training and career development so the leadership pipeline doesn't dry up.” 

"Rather than just focusing on technical skills, embedding emotionally intelligent traits in the job qualifications will help organizations hire and promote people who are more likely to succeed in these new, demanding leadership roles," Conrad said.
