A new study finds that the younger generations are more likely to quit their job to preserve their mental health.
According to a report in the Harvard Business Review, about 50% of millennials and 75% of “Gen Z” have quit a job due to what they consider mental health reasons.
That’s much higher than the overall rate of 20%. Baby boomers came in the lowest at just ten percent.
Millennials are defined as people between the ages of 22 and 38. These individuals were also 3 time more likely to experience anxiety and were more in tune with their mental health than boomers. Is this evidence that millennials are “soft”, or does it mean they better understand the importance of mental health?
