"The big resignation" comes, according to Anthony Klotz, associate professor of management at Texas A&M University, told Bloomberg Businessweek. Many workers are considering changing jobs as pandemic restrictions ease and companies call their employees back to the office. But last year, according to Klotz, there was an accumulation of deadlocked resignations, insights into the compatibility of work and family and new passion projects – all incentives for employees to leave the 9-to-5 office.

And there is a lot of uncertainty ahead of us for both sides. According to Klotz, companies are juggling with changing workers and cultures and could offer options such as full-time, part-time, remote, or a combination. In the meantime, many workers don't really want to step back and would stay if companies allowed a distant schedule or adjusted working hours.
Hence, it is important to find out your options. If someone calls you back, Klotz suggests returning to the office for a few weeks to see how things have changed. Talk to your co-workers because they are likely to have the same thoughts – and see how the company can change its policies.

If you find that the job isn't working for you, it is imperative that you meet with your boss. Research has found that managers and organizations react poorly to resignations via email or a note on a desk. And be honest with your manager – but not too honest! Include specific reasons for leaving, such as the commute or graduate school, but don't say the job doesn't make sense. Klotz advises workers to always leave positively. He also predicts that there will be many “boomerang” workers: the ones who decide they'll be missing out on their jobs in a year's time.
