Between the lines: The Deloitte findings ring true to executive recruiters. “What we see is that people are resigning to try to find a better place, a better work-life balance, a better culture,” Shawn Cole, founder of Cowen Partners, tells Axios. “That’s the ‘great reshuffle,’ as we see it.”
But the “C-suite is an island” where corporate wellness policies — like unplugging and ignoring email — don’t necessarily apply, Cole said.
What’s next: C-suite burnout could potentially translate to more enlightened workplace benefits and policies — or not, as an economic downturn puts more focus on the bottom line.
