Based on VOA Indonesia, a survey from Gallup found stress in the workplace increased from 38% in 2019 to 43% in 2020 as COVID-19 broke out and turned the world of work upside down.

The data also mentions that the greatest pressure is experienced by female workers in the United States and Canada.

This condition then triggered the phenomenon of 'massive resignations' - an increase in the number of employees leaving or changing jobs amid pressures related to the pandemic.

Business Insider says, "If the labor market changes, people who are quiet quitting will be at the top of the layoff list."
