Mad About Skills: A Top Reason People Are Quitting

New Visier Survey Uncovers Need for Further Investment in Employee Reskilling and Upskilling

What fueled the great resignation of 2021? In part, the search for new skills drove people to quit their jobs. In a recent survey of 1000 U.S.-based full-time employees, the desire for more skills was the third-most cited reason, after better pay, and better work-life balance.

Understanding which employees are looking for new skills and what kinds of skills they’re looking for are the first steps towards creating the career growth that will make employers more attractive in the competition for talent. 

In this report, you’ll find out:

  • The most-sought after skills aren’t technical or job-based skills—even in highly technical fields 
  • Which types of roles are more likely to have employer support for upskilling
  • Why soft skills matter so much to employees
