11% of Tech Workers Have Left Their Jobs, Here’s Why

We are currently in the midst of a period that is being referred to as the Great Resignation, which refers to the higher than usual level of tech workers who are quitting their jobs with all things having been considered and taken into account. Tech jobs are known for being high paying, but in spite of the fact that this is the case around 11% of tech workers who responded to a recent survey by Compucom said that they have left their jobs for other opportunities.

The people who responded to said survey included 1,000 IT employees long with an additional 1,000 that worked in a remote or hybrid capacity. 20% of these workers have faced 18 issues per week on average with workplace tech, and this results in them losing upwards of 100 minutes of productive time on a weekly basis. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that this is just one problem that is leading to the great resignation, and there are several more at play as well.

Websites that are slow to load have also been cited as an immense hurdle by 35% of IT workers, and 28% apiece mentioned restricted access to vital resources while working from home and constantly having to restart their systems as major issues. 25% of tech workers also faced constant issues with their mics and audio systems that made harder for them to take part in meetings than might have been the case otherwise, and 23% also felt hindered by having to enter a password whenever they wanted to update their systems.

79% of tech workers have started using their own personal tech devices because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing them to circumvent the old tech provided to them by employers. This is a huge security risk, since personal devices might not have the same kind of security protocols and that can lead to malicious actors being able to hack into them and subsequently into company servers.
