The uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic left many professionals feeling up in the air about their job security in 2020. Our 2021 Job Confidence Index survey, which measured over 900 financial servicesprofessionals' thoughts around the current day market, found that sentiments around the topic are looking much more positive as we close out the year.
After spending a year adjusting to remote work and the "freelancer" lifestyle that accompanies it, many professionals have expressed a disdain for the possibility of going back to pre-pandemic office hours. Becasue of this, more people are expected to quit their jobs to become a true freelancer. The candidate-driven market also has encouraged financial services professionals to seek out new opportunites in search of better pay and more flexible working opportunities.
The expectation of a "great resignation" following the previous revelations has not negatively impacted thoughts on job security. 66% of North American survey respondents are confident or very confident in keeping their jobs this year. This is up from 55% in 2020.
The annual Job Confidence Index report takes a deep dive into the minds of financial services professionals, sharing detailed findings on job security, as well as further insights on compensation, relocation, and more.
