The fact that workers regret quitting during the Great Resignation underscores a more significant issue: worker needs are not getting met.
That's according to John Morgan, president of Lee Hecht Harrison (LHH), a global provider of talent acquisition and job recruitment solutions.
According to a recent survey by Joblist, about 26% of people who quit their job during what was dubbed the Great Resignation already regret it. Additionally, 42% of people who found a new job after quitting said the new gig didn't live up to their expectations.

Not only is this a sign that "Great Regret is happening but also that workers are looking for a better workplace culture, and are finding that these needs aren’t being met by either company," Morgan said.
Chad Carden, founder of consulting firm The Carden Group, said many employees had been lured away by promises of higher pay, better titles and better perks during the Great Resignation.
