GREAT RESIGNATION, WILL IT HIT MALAYSIA?

KUALA LUMPUR, 23 February 2022: The UCSI Poll Research Centre recently released a poll result on Great Resignation. The poll was conducted among 820 citizens in Malaysia.

 

In the survey, 60% of the respondents agree that Malaysia will experience the wave of the Great Resignation and 40% of the respondents disagree.

The survey continues by asking if the respondents have plan to leave their job within next three to six months. The results show that 47% of the respondents say ‘Yes’, and 53% of the respondents say ‘No’.

While more than half of the respondents (60%) feel that Malaysia will experience the wave of the Great Resignation, only 47% of the respondents stated that they will resign within the next three to six months. The main concern of the people for not resigning may be due to insufficient savings in securing their living without a job.

 

“It is interesting to see people are still confident with their job search with 42%, the highest percentage of all those who stated they plan to leave their job in the next three to six months. We have 70% of the respondents who want to start their own businesses or go on free-lancing. This resonant well with better income sources from the gig economy, which is getting the traction in the society now.” said Associate Professor Dr Pek Chuen Khee, the CEO of UCSI Poll Research Centre and Head of Focus of Tan Sri Omar Science, Technology and Innovation Policy Centre.
