Developers are typically more disturbed than others when it comes to returning to the office.
This year, more than half of developers can leave their positions
Higher income was identified by nearly a third of developers considering quitting their jobs as a reason, followed by full-time remote and flexible work (21%), and better perks (16%).
In a poll of 2,500 people from 94 countries, including India, the United States, Germany, Canada, and the United Kingdom, DigitalOcean discovered that nearly half (42 percent) are considering or have already quit their jobs this year.
With this in mind, businesses may want to consider investing in better developer laptops or better remote collaboration solutions.
DigitalOcean dubbed this phenomenon the “Great Redistribution,” where looser policies around remote working are inspiring employees to go it alone.
Entrepreneurism was another big factor encouraging employees to seek out pastures new, and was cited by 8 per cent of developers who left their job and 9 per cent of those planning to.
The most common complaints cited by developers were lack of time and resources to work through projects, while 11% called out turnover among team members as a problem.
But it’s not just concerns about pay that are making workers consider packing it all in.
“Attracting and retaining developer talent is evolving rapidly and companies need to adapt to the new landscape,” said Gabe Monroy, Chief Product Officer at DigitalOcean. “Businesses need to better understand developers and give them the tools, benefits, and pay they need to be successful – business survival in the digital era depends on it.” The report comes soon after similar findings that found almost half of UK employees are concerned about the cost of going back to the office according to research from Slack which surveyed 1000 UK Office workers.
These stressors include costs such as travel and food, at a time when almost 9 in 10 British adults are reporting a rise in their cost of living, according to data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS).
