There are warnings of a "Great Resignation" with staff turnover in many sectors reaching up to 50 per cent.
That's according to the annual Salary and Employment Report by human resources platform MyHR, covering more than 1,250 companies, and 27,000 employees, in New Zealand between 2019 and 2022.
In data also out today, job advertisements rose to a record high, up 3-percent, in May.
Applications for those jobs fell by 4-percent.
There's been a sharp increase in demand for workers in particular in retail, hospitality and community services.
So what does this all mean for workers and employers?
