Each week, the Mployer Advisor team parses through dozens of reports, industry news, updates, and headlines. Not every statistic or data set warrants an exclusive blog post, but there are numbers that deserve to be reported on a smaller scale.     


Here are some of the top numbers that caught our attention over the past month. 




This is the number of employees who–after quitting their jobs this year–felt that they were better off with their old employer, according to a study by HR tech company UKG. What’s more, 41% stated that they had quit in haste. Retaining quality employees saves companies time and money, so make sure you have the best strategies in place to reduce workforce turnover.

This is the amount that could be returned to consumers by insurers in ACA rebates, according to an article by BenefitsPRO. This figure is about half of what it was last year, reflecting the reduction in 2020 health claims when the COVID-19 pandemic caused many to forgo healthcare.  




This is the number of executives that are in the office five days a week, according to a survey by Future Forum. Alternatively, 35% of non-executives are in the office five days a week. This gap can not only contribute to communication problems, but also make it difficult to maintain a cohesive company culture.
