QUITTING TIME - A THIRD OF BRITS PLANNING TO HAND IN THEIR NOTICE
January 26th, 2017.



January the 31st is the day Brits are most likely to hand in their notice, new research from Crunch Accounting reveals.


The study from Crunch Accounting, found that a potential 10.3 million workers are considering moving on professionally (32.5 per cent of the UK’s workforce) – but most will hang on until after January’s payday before handing in their notice.

New Year resolutions are the reason a third of people plan to take the plunge in January, while others can’t bear the thought of another whole year at work (43 per cent) or are yearning for a fresh start (43 per cent).

Bad bosses topped the list of reasons why people want to quit, with almost half of respondents (46 per cent) listing it as a factor in their decision. A lack of career progression (36 per cent) narrowly beat lousy pay (35 per cent), while stress (34 per cent) and the commute (22 per cent) all ranked highly. Nearly one in five (18 per cent) Brits are quitting to follow their dream of starting a new business.
